Matthew Zapruder on the Film Direction

with one comment

The poet Matthew Zapruder is one of my oldest friends.  He and I were deeply influenced by Christopher Guest and he knows what I want to do.  Here are his thoughts on what will happen with this film.

….. Things will develop because it’s an experience you haven’t had yet, are in the middle of having. I think the real issue will be something way beyond the surface humor of it, which is of course important. That and the charm and hilarity of some of these “ordinary” guys who are singled out by you because of the very ordinariness of their name (when you let them talk these ordinary guys just become stars!) are the engine of the film, driving it towards something deeper that you can’t (and shouldn’t) know yet. The experience itself will reveal what’s great about the film. That I think is how great documentaries work, the journey of discovery for the film maker is experienced by the viewer

  1. Interesting… Matt Zapruder was a classmate of my wife and I at LawdJeffria University.

    I note also that John Cohen was one of my best buds there, and David Cohen another great man from bidness school (also entrepreneurial types). Must be something in the name. No, Aaron Cohens though, and nary a Moses either.

    Hold on a second. Zapruder is a POET??
