Leading up to the Tribeca Film Festival premiere of Newlyweds, you extensively tweeted about its limited budget, $9,000. I get the feeling you like shoestring budgets.
I absolutely love it. I had sort of a blessing in that my most successful film, critically and commercially, was The Brothers McMullen, which I made for $25,000 with a three-man crew and nonprofessional actors. Quite honestly, I didn’t know how to make films. I was learning how to act on the fly.
