Becoming Iconic Trailer

This documentary will have particular resonance to the many creators who come to Whistler with their first films in tow or with the hopes of meeting movers and shakers during our Industry Summit and seeking to make their first time features become a reality.

The film focuses on the struggles of New York filmmaker Jonathan Baker, who after years of going to movies and working in the trenches, finally got the opportunity to direct his first film, Inconceivable, with a dream cast of Nicolas Cage and Faye Dunaway.

Fights with the studio result in Jonathan having to invest his own money into the project. The bond company threatened to remove him from the short. But he persevered.

A protégé of Warren Beatty, Jonathan then sought out to interview many acclaimed and established film directors such as Jodie Foster, Adrian Lyne and John Badham to talk candidly about their experiences shooting their first features.

They discuss how they had to pretend that they knew what they were doing and the mistakes they realize they may have made in retrospect. The film also features interviews with Nicolas Cage and Faye Dunaway from the set of Inconceivable. This is a film that no aspiring filmmaker visiting the Whistler Film Festival will want to miss.
