From an early age, April Mullen was obsessed with the idea of storytelling. Originally an actress (88, A History of Violence), Mullen soon realized her state of mind was better in the Director’s Chair. For her latest film, Wander, she’s crafting a story about a man hired to probe about a suspicious death in the small town of Wander. This conspiracy film stars Aaron Eckhart and Tommy Lee Jones. In this interview, Mullen discusses the instincts as a Director, how to collaborate with actors (from the POV of a former actor), how to decipher character moments for a film, and how she comes up with her shot list based on theme and location.
