Hi. I'm Reese. I'm a filmmaker.
I wrote a screenplay that I'm told is really good.
So I went to
No one was interested though.
I guess a great screenplay becomes less attractive
when the writer wants to direct.
So, I guess I'm making a movie.
Things have been coming together nicely.
We even got a well known actor to play the lead.
Though, ironically, that's been the biggest problem.
The fact is we're having serious trouble communicating.
When we're working, he doesn't know what I mean.
Actually when we're not working, he doesn't know what I mean.
He's a nice guy. I don't think he means to be difficult.
I just can't talk to this guy.
This is an independent film. And I’m the director.
So I have to do whatever I can to make things work.
Though he's perfect in many ways,
he's completely wrong in others.
How do you get an actor to be as good as,
well, as good as he was in that alligator movie?
Reese: You Like the Script
Reese: I want to direct
Reese: We want you…
Reese: Less please
Reese: I don't think he means to be difficult
Reese: (Thinking) Less
I can't talk about it.
It's about playing your part, the role you were meant to play.
It's about having your creative voice heard
It's about knowing what you want
