I developed a group of friends around me that were all as crazy as I was about wanting to make films.
When things aren't working out for people, the end of the world seems like an easy way to wipe the slate clean.
It was a hobby I got into a long time ago, hacking cameras. I was able to make my own using different lenses.
I went to engineering school, which I thought was what I wanted to do, for about two weeks. We had an orientation class and we met this guy where he worked and stuff and it was cool, but I was like, 'There is no way this is going to be my life.'
I am a mechanical techie. I can build things with my hands.
