“This is not an exaggeration to say, this is the movement that is needed to save this country. These kids in public schools are not getting the civics, they’re not getting the things they need to be patriots, to be good citizens, to keep our nation from going down the road to socialism, and all the things that we know are bad.

Luckily, the fundamentals are the same, and learning these fundamentals is the key to becoming a great filmmaker.
