Today, I had the pleasure to meet James Kicklighter, director, but also writer and producer at the time, who certainly has many things to say.
So much that I couldn’t decide what to cut and I had to make two videos out of it. In this first part, he talks about his origins, his film Desire of the heart and by extension, how important it is to define yourself as a director with an inner theme. To be defined in a working style that you master, that speaks to you and that allows people to identify you clearly.
I had the pleasure of discovering by James Kicklighter thanks to the youtube channel Film Courage on which he gave an interview of about an hour, where some of the same themes are developped. I recommend you to go watch it if you enjoyed this interview.
