[on Hollywood trends] I always find it funny that people take the wrong message from any success. Like "Bridesmaids" comes out and people go, "Oh, women are funny, they shit in the street. Let's make sure now everybody shits in the street!" Not like, "OK, but it's a well-constructed script with very good characters and the core of it is actually about female relationships," nothing about that...
In 2010, a pilot was produced for the CW titled "The Damn Thorpes," a family drama set on a farm. Starring was Sean Faris
as Gideon Thorpe, a 22 year old horse trainer who is forced to take care of his siblings and their ranch after their parents die. The pilot was ultimately not ordered to series. The cast included Scarlett Alice Johnson
, Kathleen Chalfant
& Alan Ruck
For her directing style - the master shot is heavily featured to frame the actors saying their dialogue and interacting together in one single take.
