I was on the football team because I wanted to experience the different iconic social classes of high school. So football for me was an attempt to socially integrate in an interesting way. And then I didn’t like it anymore and stopped doing it and focused more on drama and science and other forms of art and music.
I was born in 1950 and watched science fiction and horror movies on TV and was always really fascinated by them.
I want to be the Cecil B. DeMille of science fiction.
I think if I’m going to do a science fiction I’m going to go down a new path that I want to do.
I sort of feel that climate change will be solved by science. I just feel instinctively that we will find a way of saving ourselves. But I am less confident that we won’t destroy ourselves in other ways.
I had people in my life who didn’t give up on me: my mother my aunt my science teacher. I had one-on-one speech therapy. I had a nanny who spent all day playing turn-taking games with me.
I don’t know anything about science.
I do love science fiction but it’s not really a genre unto itself it always seems to merge with another genre. With the few movies I’ve done I’ve ended up playing with genre in some way or another so any genre that’s made to mix with others is like candy to me. It allows you to use big mythic situations to talk about ordinary things.
HGH testing is happening in Olympics. The science is there. It is a valid test.
He that desireth to acquire any art or science seeketh first those means by which that art or science is obtained. If we ought to do so in things natural and earthly how much more then in spiritual?
