Interview with 'The Drawing' Director - Dominic Grose
How did you first break into the industry?
Still working on that!
Who/What inspires you as a director?
Many people but if I had to narrow it down, Stanley Kubrick and The Cohens. Newer directors like Leigh Whannel, David F Sandberg and Ari Aster are amazing too.
What was your best set moment on ’The Drawing’?
Probably when I made my brother do a tenth take of walking from A to B and he started to trip over his own feet.
What sort of person is going to love this short?
I hope everyone but I think people that like old school horror will get a kick out of it. I try and find a balance between older horrors and newer ones like some of the newer ones today are brilliant because I feel they adopt the classic pacing of horror films from the previous generations whilst bringing their own modern style to it.
What advice would you give aspiring directors?
Cliché but just keep making stuff. And spend time in the edit as well. Don’t rush to get it out there. I have to tell myself that as well because it’s exciting when it’s all shot, and you want to show people but just chill and take some more time to focus on the edit and sound and everything else. I usually find it makes it a lot better and I also usually find I want to reshoot certain scenes.
Where can we find more of your work?
