Personal Quote:

Character and a world of its own, those are the things that are most important in any picture, that it takes you into a world of its own that is palpable in some way, that you can practically smell. The same thing with characters, they're not a stock, off-the-shelf item, they're unpredictable and ephemeral and interesting and unique. 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.
