Who: Jacob Estes, director
Logline: There’s a connection so strong between an uncle and his niece that their relationship continues even after she’s murdered.
The greatest flash of inspiration or brilliance we had making this film was: When we were scouting locations for our “diner scene,” there was a jar of bubble gum by the cash register that happened to be there at one of the 10 diners we scouted that day. Had we not scouted that diner on that very day, and had I not happened to sit on the western side of the booth but rather on the eastern side, then a massive plot point we added to the movie might have never come to mind, strictly because the inspiration for it would have been outside of my happenstance geographic field of view. For those who have seen the movie, what I’m talking about is “the bubble gum scene.”
I would love to meet Stanley Kubrick in Park City. I know, that’s impossible… but I’d like to meet him.
