Joseph Cross has been acting for over 20 years, and has been directed by some of the greatest, most iconic directors of all time. We’re talking Steven Spielberg, Gus Van Sant, Clint Eastwood, and David Fincher. So what did he learn from these directors, and how did he use that experience when directing his first feature?
And how did Audrey Tommassini, a first time producer step up to the plate as her film began to crumble around her?
Hear the tale of Summer Nights, Joseph’s and producing (and life) partner Audrey’s first feature. It is a harrowing story filled with fraud, power lunches, union strife, movie stars, family drama, crew generosity and ultimately, success.
