How did you start the process?
First, thank you for this opportunity. I had this idea in my heart for quite awhile. Initially, I thought this idea would require a major stakeholder. However, during that time. I made steps to have my dreams realized. It was during this time, I decided to take the bull by the horn and plan my own course of action. I utilized the KickStarter program. In addition, I used the money from my book sales and credit cards to finance my vision. I also had many good colleagues and friends that aided me during the making of the tv show. In addition, I had a wonderful cast and executive team that made it possible.

What do you hope to accomplish?
I want other authors to realize they can accomplish the same goal. There are many individuals who are doing the same thing. There are so many avenues that allow tv and movie development. We can greenlight our own projects.

 What is on the horizon for you?
 Well, I am currently getting ready for the screening on the show. I am also writing the sequel to Joshua! Busy. Busy. Busy!

About the Director Daven A. Falconer
Tell us something about yourself.
I'm a professional Taboo player. Well, in my mind anyway.

Who are your role models for directing ?
I admire different directors for different things. Robert Rodriguez is one of my favorite directors because he's basically a one man production team.  His first film he wrote himself, did sound design himself, did his own  cinematography, was his own camera operator.

I admire David Fincher's attention to detail and the worlds he creates in his films.  Se7en is hands down my favorite movie of all time! 

Martin Scorsese on the other hand focuses more on performance and character development.  His ability to bring brilliant performances out of his actors is truly amazing. I believe characters are the most important parts of stories and he does a great job of conveying that through their performances. 

Tyler Perry, I admire him for his hustle.  He knows what his viewers like and he caters to that. He stays to true to his viewers and himself and I respect that to the fullest.

What did you learn from directing The Heart tv show?
I learned how to work with limited resources and limited time.  Adversity is a great foundation for creativity and this project was a perfect example of that.

What is next on your horizon? I'm working on producing 2 short films right now and writing my first feature film. Also if Iris decides to do a second season, I'd love to be a part of that project.
