Two years in the making, my film Pond Scum nears completion.
Truly a collaborative effort, it has grown and morphed and mutated like a living organism into something that is, strangely enough, about the nature of creativity.
What I like most about filmmaking is the evolution of each project, and how the subject matter brings the like-minded together.
Frankly, I make films based on what fires me up. I make films with budgets and without budgets. There is always a way. That's what being creative is. Finding a way. Finding your own way. And ignoring the noise of negativity, envy, those projecting their own insecurities onto you, and those kow-towing to convention.
I have no illusions about Pond Scum's fate beyond completion.
It is dedicated to cinema's great revolutionary, Koji Wakamatsu, who may spin in his grave when he sees it. Who knows!?
