Jon’s Involvement

Jon: Hi Karen. Real quickly, thanks again for that question. The way I got involved with Derek, believe it or not, I directed a music video for a band that are called the Mere Mortals, the video is called Cracked, and Derek replaced the guitar player that was in the video and I met him consequently through my association with the band and then Derek sent me the script and this was about 3 years ago. I read it and I knew right away that this was something very special about it and I said, can we get together and talk about it which we did regularly, probably once every week, once a week, or once every couple of weeks, for about a year and a half. We sat down and talked through the script, went through it scene by scene, just massaged it as Derek likes to say, kinda get it into place. But the bones and the real grit was still there, just needed to, as a director with a vision I wanted to offer that opportunity and see if he would be interested in that and he liked where my ideas were going so it worked.
