Tension. Power. Control. As the days wear on, the drama unfolds, crews break down…and things get real. “Everybody’s a little heated. Everybody has that kind of fire burning inside you and if someone says the wrong thing…you’ll just snap,” says Producer Greg Kwedar, “I’m frustrated because I want control. I’m not getting it. I’m not going to get it and I’ve gotta let go of that.” Near the breaking point, while burning cash and burning daylight, Johnstone and Kwedar fight to keep it together. Through all the obstacles on location, they keep focus on the interviews and story. “One of the things with an interview for me,” says Johnstone, “Is the balance between capturing the story and letting the scene of the story…tell a story within itself.”
“I only have two days to do this,” says Director Johnstone. “I need it now. I want it right now…not yesterday. I don’t want to have to teach you. This is not the time to teach you anything. If we don’t get this…I don’t have a movie.” Watch what happens when a documentary turns into a reality.
