Sundance Interview: Moon Writer/Director Duncan Jones
by Alex Billington
January 26, 2009
One of my favorite films coming out of Sundance is Moon, the sci-fi flick starring Sam Rockwell. The man behind it all, Duncan Jones, made both his writing and directing debut with Moon and proved that he's definitely a filmmaker to keep an eye on in the coming years. Immediately after screening the film, I frantically confirmed that I had an interview with Duncan, because there was so much I wanted to ask him. So here is my rather fascinating interview with him. Lastly, I should mention a big spoiler warning for this video, since we talk about some of the big plot elements that a few of you might not want to know.

Please be patient while loading the video - the file size is huge! Thank you!
As you see above, I'm trying a new format for interviews at Sundance this year using my Flip Mino. I apologize for the odd angle yet again, as we were rushed into this. For reference, what I showed him on my iPhone was that I have this Moon poster as my background. A lot of people always ask what movie it's from and I just wanted to show him that I love the poster. Additionally, Duncan was a bit upset that the interview was cut so short, so I've talked with him and will forward any follow-up questions over to him to answer. So if there's more you want to ask as well, let me know, and we'll work on a follow-up interview!
