My feature film in development, "I Was a Simple Man," has been invited to participate in the Sundance Directors Lab this June:
I'm not sure what I've done to deserve such good fortune this year. It makes me nervous and I keep waiting for the other shoe to drop -- too much good news is weird in that way.
But I'm looking forward to workshopping these scenes at the lab. Because for the first time in a long time I've written something that is outside of my normal formal range. And I'll be pushing myself to try new things, new visual tactics, to really try to capture what I think is the core of this film: this film is a beautiful dark silence, but it's also an acceptance of transience.
And every morning I'm waking up to new images, coming in from who knows where.
