I love a good story. I have traveled around the world and have heard wonderful stories in every country I have visited. Ghost stories, Folk tales. Myths and Legions, I love how cultures blend them and retell them. I try to do that with the films I produce.
Writers inspire me. Roddenberry, Asimov, Ray Bradbury, Poe, Melville, Barbara Tuchman, I draw from a deep and wide well of writers.
Comedy, Film noir, Sci Fi, and anything that mashes them together!
2001: A Space Odyssey, Jeremiah Johnson, High Plains Drifter, The Maltase Falcon. Robinson Caruso on Mars. yeah I love a mix of things but why not?
