When a man’s dream comes true: A New York City filmmaker’s vision for a movie theater
It’s been five years since a movie about a young man living in New York’s East Village began to take shape.
Now, five years later, the movie has opened in over 30 theaters across the country.
And it’s one of the most successful films of the year, raking in over $3.3 million in ticket sales in just its first weekend.
But for many New Yorkers, that movie is just the beginning.
Here, we explore the work of a filmmaker whose career spans from the early 1990s to the present day.
He’s also a writer, producer, actor, and filmmaker whose films have been featured on the Oscars and Sundance, and whose new feature film, The Good Place, is being released by Netflix this summer.
In the interview below, we talk to Michael Eisner, director of the acclaimed and award-winning film The Good Ones, about his process for adapting the book to the screen, the inspiration behind his characters, and his journey toward a dream that’s been made real.
The Good Place is Michael Eischner’s first feature film.
He also co-directed the documentary film The End of the Road: The Story of New York in 2018.
We met at the Sundance Film Festival in February.
I was in the middle of shooting a film called The Good Places and I thought, Wow, this is going to be a really great one.
I was in Los Angeles, working on the film.
I just sat down and wrote down ideas.
And then I was like, Oh, I’m going to do this.
And so I thought it was great.
And I knew that if I did this, I would be able to do something with it.
I didn’t want to just be doing the same thing I had been doing before, but I was going to start over and do something completely different.
I went and did an online search and found The Good Things and I just thought, Well, what is this story?
And so this is the beginning of my journey with The Good Trees.
It’s kind of like when you’re a kid.
It’s the beginning when you’ve got a toy or a game or a book or a movie.
It starts with your imagination and your imagination starts to fill in the details of what is the world like.
And when you start to write, you start writing things down.
You start to draw, you create, you make things.
And you try to build things.
So you start off with a blank canvas and you try things out.
And eventually, you find out what you like and what you don’t like.
I’ve learned a lot about what’s cool about life and what’s not.
I can see the world a little bit differently than people who were born and raised in the ’60s and ’70s.
And what I’ve also learned is that sometimes, the things that are most interesting are the things we’re most afraid to do.
So that’s what The Good Tree is.
That’s the way I look at it.
And that’s how I’m writing it.
I love writing.
Writing is a really good way to connect with the reader.
It is a great way to introduce people to things that they might not have had a chance to experience.
And there are times where it’s really challenging because you’re writing and you’re trying to figure out how the story is going and how you want to make it happen.
I really enjoy the challenge.
I’m a really ambitious person.
I like to see the story evolve over time.
I love the fact that I have this thing in my head and then you get to go through it.
It becomes something you can work with and you don
