FILMMAKER Jonathan Gabriel’s Interview by Zieere I.

If someone wanted to follow in your footsteps, what advice would you have for them?

-          I would advise them to shoot everything and try to look at the world in a different way. Everyone is different and has a story, so don’t just assume that everyone is the same. Take a step back and look.

Did you always have a passion for filmmaking?

-         Yes, I have loved filmmaking ever since I was young. I started shooting with anything that I could get my hands on.

What makes you different?

-         I’m loud and eccentric and I love people. I love people so much, like I really do…  I love bringing people together. I really try to look at life differently and I try to be unique and fun. Life is already kind of difficult, so I just want people to feel alive. 

What is one rule that you advise people to always follow?

-         Your initial idea is not always your best idea; sometimes it’s better to completely flip your ideas and thought process. You never know what the outcome might be. If you never venture, you will never know. Try to experience something new. Anyone can be a filmmaker. You do not have to be a Spielberg to make films. You do not need the biggest camera in the world to tell a great story. Anyone can do it, especially you guys, because you guys are awesome!
