Personal Quotes (4)

[re lead character Davie in his mother's book, which became his film Tiger Eyes (2012)] I still really related to her sense of isolation and trying to figure her life out on her own. And I also thought it was very cinematic. I could see it, when I read: the canyons, the locations, the whole thing. I could just see it in my mind's eye, and I thought, 'I want to make this into a movie.'
[re collaboration with mother Judy Blume on Tiger Eyes (2012) ] This was a real homemade movie. There was something about the two of us being next to each other there, every day, that I think the whole crew kind of rallied around...My background was as an editor, so I think structurally. And then she's character and dialogue.
[re Tiger Eyes (2012) ] We had to shoot four huge emotional scenes in one day. Normally, you shoot one. But we got total artistic control. So for better or worse, it's our movie.
[re Tiger Eyes (2012) ] You don't get many films about teenage girls that are subtle, not hysterical, that you'd actually like to take a teenage girl who's a relative to see.
