Striving to Direct Film

As I embark on this journey (more exciting than anything I’ve done previously) I’m gobbling up knowledge as quickly as my brain can absorb.

I produced and directed my first short PRELUDE TO MURDER IN SOUTHEAST AUSTIN earlier this year under the tutelage of Sundance’s Collab program. The award winning directors, Julia Solomonoff and Danielle Lessovitz taught the lab — wow! I will direct my next short in September.

I can’t read books on the art of directing fast enough. I can’t view enough online classes and seminars.

But no matter what, I’ve recognized a truth that is absolute no matter where I turn…

Every really good director I’ve communicated with has these things in common: humility, honesty, a love for actors and a willingness to help those of us who want to learn and grow.

I’m humbled by their attitude and hope I’m there some day.
