5Q's w/Andrew Wilcox "Some Kind of Quest" Director

#1: Can you describe your movie and why somebody should see it in less than 140 characters?

"Some Kind Of Quest" finds us in the advanced years of an artist's life, as he struggles to maintain his life's work, a 52,000 square foot model train town. 

#2: What do you want the Borrego Springs Film Festival audience to know about your film that isn’t obvious from its title?

This film is as much an inspiration to creative people, as it is a cautionary tale.  

#3: What is your movie making background?  Tell us about yourself.

"Some Kind of Quest" was my directorial debut. I left the world of creative advertising to create this film.

#4: What was the biggest lesson learned in getting your film made?

When making a documentary, have a very clear idea of what you want the story to be. Next, don't resist when the story becomes something else entirely. 

#5: What does the future hold for your film and you?

On the heels of this film, I've signed on with a new production company called "Hone." I'm jumping head first into the exciting and intimidating world of commercial directing. I also hope to create more documentaries as the inspiration strikes.
