The Talks interview


Kaufman gives an interview to The Talks. He discusses writing a script, why he doesn’t have assistants, and why he chose to direct.

I don’t think it was necessarily like I needed it for my ego. I was interested in it. I started out doing that stuff: I went to film school and I made movies when I was a kid and I did a lot of acting when I was a kid, too. I’ve always been interested in theater and actors and it was something that I’ve always wanted to do. It’s a good thing for me to be able to make my work even more personal – to take it from its conception to its completion and to be able to make all the choices myself. It maintains a certain integrity maybe that it might not otherwise have and I wanted to explore that.
