Pick for 8.28.12 – “Beauty Is Embarrassing”

I, like most people, came out to Hollywood to get into movies. I was writing scripts and TV show ideas but really I was just a PA and intern and just digging ditches. So two things that sort of collided: I knew I wanted to make a movie, right? But also when I met Wayne I knew I wanted to make a movie about Wayne.

It felt much more important to meet those people and look them in the eye and understand that. If you fictionalize it, you lose all of that, and that’s why I felt it was important to make it a documentary. It had to be a documentary.

Pick for 6.20.12 – “Beyond the Black Rainbow”

Over the years, I had written a few screenplays that I didn’t really show to anybody much, but then I started making short films just as a learning process, making them for myself to help me explore. And then my father’s death really lit a fire under my ass; time really seemed of the essence, and I had an image of myself not having done it by a certain age, and I couldn’t live with that. [Laughs.] So I just had to do it.

Crom, I have never prayed to you before. I have no tongue for it. No one, not even you, will remember if we were good men or bad. Why we fought, or why we died.
