I believe with every independent movie the sacrifice is always time versus money. We never have enough of either. However, you find creative solutions when faced with these constraints. As for Big Sur, the location itself sacrificed our crew on a daily basis. It’s basically cliffs, canyons and sea shore. It’s heaven, so there’s some death involved…well, let’s say redemption. Overall it was a religious experience and the author of our bible was Jack Kerouac – a testament to survival.”
