I tried to reach out. He and Adam are both highly trained actors.
Beyond bringing those tools that they have everyday, they both have great respect for the material. I say that less about preserving my ego on set, but about how they both come in and know exactly what they want to do with the material.
Not that its about coming in a trying to change everything on the day. There is, especially for Adam, a lot of tough material for the actor. We just cast the roles really well. I think both were waiting for really meaty roles that combine their comedic and dramatic skills.
The last scene J. For any actor in that role, it would be the toughest scene. We shot that on our very first day of photography. A lot of actors would have made a stink about having to come out first day and knock that out. For me to watch a pro like that work was such a learning experience everyday.
As a young director, to have actors like J. They brought what they were going to bring to it, we worked on it a little bit and that was sort of that. I might not be prepared for that because my previous experience with Adam, J.
What did you glean from your first experience as a director with December Ends, which was made for significantly less, that you were able to apply to this film?
You have to crew up properly. The work suffered and my experience suffered a bit because of it. With The Vicious Kind, I think my casting director and I were relentless in finding the right people. What I learned on The Vicious Kind was that, and perhaps this is obvious, but actors like to be directed. Its something I fell a bit short on with this film and would like to improve upon the next time around should there be one, to really not be afraid to direct the actors.
