Getting Close to Philip in "Glass"
I wanted to create a story where the participants were the narrators with
the sense that the audience was invited into the room to share in these
lives of Philip, his friends and family. I always felt the film would be a
kind of “mosaic portrait”, like a Chuck Close portrait, where an arrangement
of fragments form an overall picture.
