There are many different ways to tell a story.
In the thick of storyboarding and editing “Mosley," friends would often wander in my basement office and make suggestions. Sometimes it felt like an intervention. “You know,” they would say with strained expressions, "movies are just so expensive and hard to make. Why not make Mosley into a book?” The thought had occurred to me. Books are certainly cheaper than movies. They are not, however, easier to make.
The format of writing a book was liberating to me. A movie is storytelling distilled, boiled down, fat free. But books aren't afraid to linger. A book expects to be your companion for a few days and feels at ease to take it’s time. I very much enjoyed doing that with Mosley. If the characters compelled you in the film, then sit a spell and learn more about them. There is more to tell. And perhaps some roads lead to different places.
