“You’re carrying around some old man on your shoulders. Some demon’s got you deep in its clutches. He’ll follow you to the end.” For Max Bornstein, the end could come prematurely, as his heroin addiction, withholding of secrets from his family, and illegal dealings within the pornography industry take a terrible toll on his body and mind in Dynamite: A Cautionary Tale.
Set in 1970’s-era New York City, Dynamite: A Cautionary Tale is based on a true story. With production successfully wrapped on the film, and an Indiegogo campaign recently launched to aid in the post-production process, we caught up with director Tate Steinsiek to discuss being drawn to Max’s real life story, shooting a period piece during the winter in New York City, transitioning from makeup effects work to the director’s chair, and much more.
