Film Review: Heroes

On financing his film, Heroes: “It’s been 10 years of trying to find money, but of course I don’t got no rich uncle or rich family member, so I had to save up my nickels. It took that long to get to the point where I can attempt to make a film.”

On the idea for Heroes: “I guess I was taking myself and my own life and saying, ‘What if I was doing something at night, undercover, and trying to make a difference?’”

On the film’s future: “In line with Galaxy, if it does well then I can branch out into some more of their theaters, and also I can use that to maybe catapult myself in front of a distributor or just keep going city to city by myself, which I don’t mind.” –Josh Bell
