I was very inspired by Les Blanks film Burden of Dreams. I think whats unique about his film and the two Ive made is that theyre close examinations of filmmakers and how their own emotional experiences reflect in the material theyre rendering, and vice versa - how that material sometimes colors their own lives.
Both dreams and myths are important communications from ourselves to ourselves. If we do not understand the language in which they are written, we miss a great deal of what we know and tell ourselves in those hours when we are not busy manipulating the outside world.

I have very vivid dreams - almost always action-adventure. Im often on the run. Ive always had dreams. When I was little, Id go to sleep with my head on my hands, which were in fists like I was looking through a camera. I felt like sleep was the movies - just drifting off to the movies.
