I saw a post on Twitter a few months ago from my friend Vincent Laforet (Réverie, Möbius , MōVI) announcing a nasty looking broken arm with the scariest looking x-ray I have ever seen. While most creatives would probably have gone crazy from not being able to work for a few months, Vincent, the practical man that he is, turned his luck around by producing a 10 week, 32 city educational tour called “Directing Motion.”
While I was shooting Fathers and Daughters in Pittsburgh, Lydia met him in his studio to discuss his recovery after the accident and how that immobility created the opportunity to finally analyze his favorite films from the greatest directors of all time. That analysis led to the creation of the content for this tour. Vincent is clear about his life goals and very focused on his future with family. Directing a feature is at the top of that list.
Thank you, Vincent, for making the time for this interview on the day before you left town to launch the Directing Motion Tour 2014.
