Personal Quote:

The director's cut is a lot closer to what premiered at Sundance Film Festival. Then the movie didn't sell for four months, and all the sudden the movie is STV, going straight to video, and it's going to debut on the STARZ! Network. ...... at this point I was just desperately trying to salvage the film before they take it away from me and it debuts on the STARZ! Network and my career is over. See more »

Trivia:

Two of his favorite films are Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back (1980) and Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior (1981). He has posters for them in his house. See more »
