Growing up, my sisters and I would always talk stories. One of my frustrations was I didn’t know anything about cameras. I didn’t know how to make a film and I obviously didn’t have a special effects budget. I was a kid. So I was learning to draw to get down the stuff that was in my head, that I couldn’t afford to actually do.
When I figured that I could do anything if I was simply methodical about it. I went to the library – and this was before the Internet – and I searched for a career that was creative, would not fall into a routine, involved problem solving and making things. It also had to be dynamic. I came up with special effects.
I try to express in my films things that no other art can approach. In my monster films for example, I use special effects in the same way one would use a special film stock, a special camera, and so on. Monster films permit me to use all of these elements at the same time. They are the most visual kind of film.
When I was in architecture school, rather than giving us drafting boards and t-squares and lead pencils and stuff they gave us all the same tools that places like Digital Domain and ILM used to make features films or special effects. They gave us all these digital tools like Alias and Mya and Soft Image and all these kind of high-end computers, so I came out of architecture school knowing how to use all that stuff. And I started making short films at night.
