Title: Lessons In Self-Defense
Ben wants nothing more than to have his estranged 15-year-old daughter, Victoria, back in his life. When Victoria asks to meet with him, Ben eagerly seizes the opportunity, but quickly realizes that his daughter’s reasons for coming back into his life have nothing to do with reconciliation.
EXCERPT FROM THE INTERVIEW
You want people to like your work, you want it to mean something to them, to teach, entertain or inspire, but there’s no way to control that.
I’ve come to a point where I just write and direct things I can make for no money. And, by no money, I don’t mean $500,000. I mean $50 – $60 bucks, feed the actors, shoot with a Flip, and do ADR later. The most I can offer actors is good writing and complex characters. I’d like to be a button pusher, an instigator. It is supposed to spark a conversation, after all.
