How COLLABORATOR Happened & Why The Actors Did It

If you couldn't make it to the IFC Center in NYC on June 18th, you missed having Hal Hartley moderate a Q&A session with Martin Donovan, David Morse, Melissa Auf der Meur, and myself on how Martin wrote, directed, and got his debut feature made.

Ah, but no worries, the glory that is the internet brings the past back to you for your eternal enjoyment.  COLLABORATOR is currently available on VOD and will return to the IFC Center tomorrow July 6th, and then the Egyptian in LA on July 20th.  Please check it out.

 

Certain highlights to check out:

Hal Hartley & Martin Donvan on "What is directing" approximately 1745- 2250

David Morse, Hal Hartley, Martin Donovan, and me (Ted Hope): "What makes a director someone an actor (or producer) wants to work with" approx 25:00 - 31:00

For more of Martin's secrets, check out his interview with Marshall Fine here.

"On Casting With The Director" via The New Breed

When I was out in LA for LAFF, I got an opportunity to sit with Kevin & Zac of Sabi to talk about the casting process for their series "The New Breed" that they are doing with Filmmaker Magazine and The Workbook Project.
