We catch up with John Raposas, director of Truth, to get his take on everything film.
Short Notice: If you could watch only one film for the rest of your life, which would it be?
John: Maybe it's just the way I'm feeling right now, but Ocean's 13.
Short Notice: What inspired you to go into the film industry?
John: I had a story to tell, and it was a way for me to show people how I saw the world.
Short Notice: What was your biggest challenge in making this short film?
John: I made my film for the 72 hour film shootout in NY. So I only had 72 hours to write, shoot, edit, and deliver my project.
Short Notice: What is your next project?
John: The fun, danger, and excitement that happens when you are someone's first Asian friend.
Short Notice: What advice would you give to an aspiring film maker?
John: My advice would be to FAIL! FAIL! FAIL! I know a lot of people, including myself thought filmmaking was a talent that you were either born with or not. When in fact it's just like everything else, you have to work at it. Storytelling is a skill just like anything else. It needs to be developed. The best way to learn is to fail and get better.
