Joe Swanberg Quotes

Joe Swanberg Quotes: I always loved the work. As soon as I finished a movie, the most exciting thing to do was to try to jump into the next one.

Joe Swanberg Sayings: A lot of the people I'm working with are not actors, or it's their first time in a movie. I'm not trying to shape performances, coax performances out of them.

Joe Swanberg Quote: The really cool thing is all about being able to take your movie around and show it. It puts you in direct contact with people who are like-minded and interested in similar things. I think the film festival circuit has certainly helped to foster the community.
