Filmmaker Ron Howard says his daughter Bryce Dallas Howard is his biggest critic. The 62-year-old American filmmaker, who has daughters Bryce, Paige, Jocelyn and son Reed with wife Cheryl, said he has great people to rely on if he wants an honest critique of his work, reported Female First.
“Well, my wife Cheryl to begin with, she is also a novelist so she has a great story mind and it has always been a creative secret weapon for me, so her instincts matter a lot.
“My daughter Bryce now, when I can get her in she is very smart about movies, has great ideas and she is very very critical, especially (to) Dad. So I have got some very good
resources to go to,” Howard said.
The director said he regularly has test screenings because he wants to ensure the audience will not be confused by his storyline. “Lots of test screenings as I always do, because I am always curious about the way the movies is communicating with the audience. And, of course, these kind of movies are so complex the questions are always about refining how much information is coming forward, so you’re not too confusing and not revealing too many twists and turns too quickly. ”
Meanwhile, the director who has worked with Indian actor Irrfan Khan in Inferno, says he would love to offer his “outsider” sensibilities to an Indian project provided he feels he can add value to it.
