Director Statement

The project interested me mainly because of the style of filmmaking. We gave the actors a brief of the character, and in many ways it was free reign for them. Seeing the enthusiasm from the actors was a real proud moment for me. Sometimes I would say something, and it was like a light bulb going off in their head. Yes, we had an idea about how we wanted the actors to perceive him but in fact the actors had their ideas about how they wanted to see Simon Wetherby.
