Q 5 – Pete the Poet Interviews Director

Hey Batt, if you were making Uncle Joe’s American Odyssey today, what’s one thing you would do differently?

Pete the Poet

Hi Pete the Poet. A somewhat flat response, but I’d be using the skills I’ve learned since then to my benefit. That’s the technical part of the answer.

I’ll borrow a second ‘one’ if you don’t mind. My inexperience let me be fresh. So if I filmed Uncle Joe’s American Odyssey now, I’d probably be busy trying to make up for that fresh ‘evergreen’ feeling. The wide open eyes you have when you’ve entered a new world. Maybe more media experience would help. Or for this type of movie, maybe it would really hurt.

Pete the Poet still writes poetry. He also co-edits the online poetry journal http://www.ADozenNothing.com.
