- When I was nine, my father died of a heart attack at age 36. Part of my therapy was going to film and movies. It actually planted a seed for me.
- [I thought] ‘How can I be behind the camera? How can I help create those images? How can I be a part of that process that is able to facilitate change in the world?’ Going through such a difficult experience really was what got me the most interested in Hollywood and pursuing a career in film.
- Definitely. I feel that part of my purpose in life is to make movies. [It’s to] make films that challenge the way that we think, will inspire us, will give us hope, will empower us.
- One, what's the commercial prospect of the film? You want a movie that has a high-concept idea, something that you believe will actually work, that people will actually go see.
- Then, as an executive, what are your tastes? [I ask] do I fundamentally get where the target is for this film? And can I help champion this film to help it get there? If the answer is yes, then it's usually something I will advocate.
- It's a beautiful dilemma or dichotomy. Faith without works is dead, and faith is the substance of things that we hope for, the evidence of things that aren't seen. So what we have to do is continuously have faith in God's plan.
- We do control how we wake up in the morning, how we approach the office, if we come in the office and we work hard. But what we have to recognize is that, in having faith, we give Him ultimate control to guide us wherever He would have us to go.
- And there are times where, literally, I get so frustrated. I'm trying to move this movie forward, and then I look at myself and I say ‘Man I’m missing it! Lord, I'm trusting myself.’ In those moments I have to remember that God is in control [and] trust that He is going to guide this process where He would have it to go.
- The first thing is that you have to be a thousand percent sure that this is the business that God is calling you to do. If you're not sure why you're doing it, or if you're chasing Hollywood for fame or fortune, once you get in, you'll do anything, including compromise who you are or your faith, in order to achieve what you consider success.
- Commit to the process of success. If you do, through all the challenges, God will certainly allow you to get to where you're trying to go.
