Let’s keep it simple because there’s a lot going on. Basically the Poseidon is a cruise ship with lots of family and friends on board preparing for a Christmas vacation. The trouble is that there are also terrorist on board! I don’t think I’m ruining anything if I tell you that within an hour of the movie (an hour TV time, but only about 30 minutes if you skip the commercials) there is an explosion and the ship turns completely upside down! Now the rest of the movie is in the escape – can all these people escape off of an upside down ship? And in the meantime, other stuff may go down… sit back and relax and watch to find out what happens!
And my input and pushing everybody to their limits, everybody, every department, whether it be music, whether it be the dance department, whether it be the set design department, whether it be the wardrobe department, I’m involved in every facet of it, and you will watch that. You watch the process, which actually adds more Lk21 to it because you see how much is involved and how many people are involved, how many hundreds of people are involved behind the scenes, let alone the thousand people that are dancing. You see that, and we’re building to something that you’re clearly aware we have no idea how it will turn out.
While this is not your U.S. debut, having played here in 2009 and 2010, some people in the audience, or reading about you, will see and hear you for the first time. What should they know about Echogram?
The answer to your question, one more time, is yes. I don’t intentionally go too far, but when you are dealing with something that is unscripted and you don’t know and it’s not somebody who has been hired, the person that the prank is on is not somebody that has been hired and vetted and they’re not reciting lines and they’re not being produced as it were, you don’t know where you’re going to take them. So that is always an element of fear and angst in my world.
If the above four ideas don’t work, you’re probably dealing with someone whose negativity is part of their self image. These people are harder to connect with – but they can be helped.
Lord of the Rings Trilogy (2001, 2002, 2003). I cheated a little with this one but there is no better picture to show a long journey than these three. This set of movies will probably remain director Peter Jackson’s biggest achievement. He solved the problem of making Tolkien’s virtually unfilmable trilogy into a major motion picture and succeeded on most fronts. Some of the main actors include: Elijah Wood, Sean Astin, Ian McKellen, Viggo Mortensen and Orlando Bloom.
