5Q's w/Eric Dyson "Baby Steps" Director



#1: Can you describe your movie and why somebody should see it in less than 280 characters?
This film is a story about 2 best friends and the importance of  having one person you can count on no matter what. The main reason to watch this film is that it's a simple story about a very complex issue.

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

This is a true story. An amalgamation of life events. What started out as a series of cathartic notes ended up as an excellent piece of film making.  

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

I started working in a production company when I was 16. I'm much older now. I love the process. From paper to print. I've had the pleasure of working with some great "no names" as well as names like Spielberg and De Niro.

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

Always be prepared with a plan, a backup plan and one more backup plan just in case. But also be prepared to throw it all out if something more bad ass develops. 


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

Working on a feature length script of my short. Also putting the final touches on another short film.
