Create your own path. Cultivate it. It'll take time. It doesn't happen overnight. I was an actor for many years before I got behind the camera.
Improvise when obstacles present themselves. Happy accidents are magic! Have an open mind.
My advice on-set is to make every day better than last one. Change is good.
It's always money no matter kind of budget you have, though, it forces you to be creative and not take anything for granted.
Character driven stories engage me and when an audience gets to know a character in an unforced way and finds themselves rooting for him or her, those are the kind of movies that get me excited.
If you pitch your movie to someone and they say, "Oh, please, don't make that. No one would see it." Do it! Because that means you may have something that's not the norm.
I'm passionate about stories that have humanity, compassion and humor.
Securing distribution is always a battle. And to get a film released is a pretty special accomplishment.
