Hallway Obsession

The other day I was very flattered and intrigued when someone pointed out to me something about my films that I hadn’t even noticed.  I’m talking particularly about the movies that I’ve personally done and not the “for-hire” gigs.

Without consciously thinking about it, all the films that I’ve written and directed feature a major character walking away from the camera down a long hallway — each time occurring during Act 1 of their story.  I guess you do what you love (sometimes without even noticing it).

The cool thing is that now I have a tiny body of work to look back on and reflect on my growth.  I can see the flaws, learning lessons and, in this case, patterns.  I wonder why I’m obsessed with characters and hallways?

When looking back, what have you noticed about your films so far?
