Filmmaking is the perfect marriage between two things that I've been called to do. One, help people understand each other. Two, Make pictures that say something, or reveal something about someone. I began in photojournalism, which is all about helping readers understand something about the people in your pictures. I started making film after that. Seemed like a more powerful tool than still photography.

I've just always had a special interest people who are facing up to a challenge that they are heavily outmatched by.
More heart than head
I think the greatest communication comes from emotion rather than information. When I see film that does that effectively, I'm inspired.
People of principle
I love meeting someone who goes out of their way to uphold a principle, Something they'd do even if no one was there to notice.
