It's great down here, coming to work and hanging out with your friends and talking about video games all day.
When you're here working 85 hours a week and you go home and sleep and shower and come right back, that's the hardest thing.
It's fantastic that this top horse is going to be staying in New Zealand, owned by New Zealanders and trained by Mark Walker, our top man.
There is a definite trend that existing laws are being specifically refined to cover the Internet,
Then Gorky Park was my first big feature.
So there was always a stunt coordinator on those films that was from Stunts Unlimited and I was just one of the young warriors from Stunts Unlimited that got to be a part of it because it was a big show and they needed a lot of guys.
So then I started doing a lot of episodic TV, just car chases or helicopter chases or whatever.
No, we always had something to do because I did all the wave runners and jet skis and boats approaching the atolls and stuff like that, so you could do that without showing the actual atoll or the set that you're going towards, but detailing all those guys racing towards it.
No, in Lethal Weapon I was a taxi cab driver that Mel jumps in front of the taxi and pulls me out of the car and steals the taxi. Then I did some other indie driving for some of the car sequences.
It was great. I mean, it's a blast directing underwater stuff.
I think my biggest break though came probably on Patriot Games because it was the biggest, longest second unit up to that point. It was like five months of shooting and a huge crew.
I mean, you have a general tone of it but it's pretty much you get to come in and you're going to flip this car and it's going to blow up and you're going to come out on fire and you go oh, that's cool, and then you get paid a lot of money.

I jumped 18 cars on a motorcycle, so I did almost everything.
Fourth Law of Thermodynamics If the probability of success is not almost one, then it is damn near zero.
Unless you go out and say what you stand for, other people will do it for you.
Waterworld was the best time of my life. It was physically demanding, but it was fun. I mean, you're in Hawaii for nine months shooting on the water every day.
I felt that if there wasn't going to be a good opportunity, then I would just go back to second units which I love, keep working with great directors, keep learning and knowing that the opportunity would come when the time was right.
They do think it is a big summer movie and that's why they want to give it a great chance, but they don't want to go up against Spider-Man 2 or some of the other big movies, the 100 million films that are coming up.
We're talking to New Line. They've got a couple projects they're interested in me doing and I'm having meetings at MGM. There's a lot of available projects.
like it or not, e-mail is used for file transfer.
Yeah, getting the company that would help advertise and cross promote the movie on the release was an important factor for New Line, so we went out to a lot of different companies.

You don't get a chance to take a breath but when you do, you have some really good comedy moments that ease up on the tension that the movie is centered around which is Kim being kidnapped and her son and husband being kidnapped and the jeopardy that they're in.
Comedy. I think that's something I'd really like to do.
