Like most people, there was a time in my life where I fancied myself a filmmaker. I will readily admit now that I do not possess the creative talents to be able to take the written word and make it a visual piece of art. Heaven knows I tried to dream it up, but I just wasn’t meant for that world. Well, during my most recent case of wanting to be a filmmaker, I worked on the short film Knife (currently playing in the SXSW Texas Shorts Showcase) directed by Fort Worth, TX writer/director/producer/vegan chef and all around awesome man, James Johnston. James has been a staple at SXSW for as long as I’ve been attending and his commitment to promoting Texas filmmaking is just one of the many reasons he continues to earn respect and praise in our little Texas bubble. As you can imagine, James is pretty busy this week promoting Knife and working on various other projects, but he took a few minutes to talk with me about some of his fondest SXSW memories.
