I aspire to be the ordinary safe type that can get paid to make films...the successful auteur directors (kubrik, welles, lynch, waters) are so few and far between (especially now) that I don't think there's a market for the types of films that are produced in an unsafe way. I have kids to feed and a mortgage.
I don't see the world in the same way an auteur director does, I'm more just a run of the mill story-teller. I'm good at story telling, but I don't have the brilliant artistic vision of the auteur directors. I plan on making saleable movies, so I can continue to make movies. Right now, is my film school period where I learn through failure and lots of questions.
We're approaching the point where we're going to start finding a budget for a feature length project we have in the hopper for festival entry (sundance, SXSW, Cannes). Still a few shorts between now and then to refine a couple more pieces of our process in preparation for the big one. casting, set design, wardrobe, makeup, effective direction
Fewer setups per day, so less settling for what we've got and more striving for GREAT! More separation of tasks for increased focus on quality.
