Personal Quote:

It used to be that if you made a good film that really worked on a lot of levels, that was the most important thing. Now you've got to sell people with a sound bite. There's no time for people to discover movies anymore. See more »


Was UCLA classmate of Francis Ford Coppola, who as exec. producer of The Black Stallion (1979), chose Ballard to direct it.


Films often focus on animal and human interactions.
