I asked him some questions on directing.
What does a director do?
You work with actors, get a good script and get the best performances out of the actors.
Tell us about the film?
5 years ago we wanted to make a film about politics. It revolves around 2 guys who run the ANC's Braamfontein offices.
How did you fund it?
Through friends and our own money.
What advice do you have for young film makers starting out?
Get a decent story, a couple of characters, a 2 handler, sell the people on the idea.
