How We Got Away With It written and directed by Jon Lindstrom

Filmmaking is as visceral a creative experience as writing, painting or acting. With a company of performers and craftspeople depending on you to meet the schedule, planning is essential. Definitive choices on style, tone and form must be made before principle photography, but on set, where all that counts is what’s going through the lens, your guide is your instinct. Whether it be a performance note, a shot composition, or you’ve just lost a location and need to adapt quickly, it is your inner voice that shows you the way. 

I lean toward dramatic crime thrillers (though I do love me some character-driven humor). I'm honored to have had my films screened all over the world, and to have been recognized at several festivals. I am very proud of my contributions to Kids In The Spotlight, a not-for-profit dedicated to encouraging foster children to tell their stories through film.

“The truth of a thing is in the feel of it, not in the think of it.”- Stanley Kubrick
