Hi there Brian! What is it we need to know about you?
I like to think that if I spot someone who has that spark, or hear an idea that makes me listen (short attention span us producers) then I am the man to get it made. I make sure that the director is surrounded by the most talented crew and cast that I can find. I’m all about using what you have and renting, borrowing and blagging what you don’t to get the director’s vision into a film can. It isn’t always easy and it isn’t always fun, but I create worlds and what megalomanic wouldn’t love that.
You sound like a cool guy! So why The Pitch?
I simply had to be involved in The Pitch. It is a film geeks film. It is also a filmmakers film, the tale of a Director pitching a Producer. You have to trust me when I say that I have been both director and producer in this scenario. I have been pitched to by desperate storytellers and been a desperate storyteller myself. It is about an experience that all film directors have to go through and something that is unfortunately almost unheard of in Film Schools. This is an amazing and funny homage not just to films but to the process itself and I love it.
