“HAMLET 2” co-writer-director, Andrew Fleming
We were always running out of something: film stock, extras, sani-wipes, dessert at lunch, daylight, bodily strength, common sense, gum. But in the end it was usually enough. So what was lacking? Lately my therapist has been encouraging me to enjoy the creative process more. This one really should have been fun: a) It’s something I’ve wanted to make for many years. b) I got to work with awesome actors. c) The crew is composed of my cool friends. d) We got to shoot in Albuquerque, N.M., which is truly the Paris of the Southwest. So if I could get 10 percent more of something it would be enjoyment of the process. I’m not saying I have a bad time. I’m just saying every day is torture.
