Kaleidoscope - Ian Mune

Television (Full Length) – 1989

This half-hour portrait of actor and director Ian Mune kicks off at a family wedding. In-between clips illustrating his career, Mune reflects on life as a storyteller, "bullshitter" and goat farmer. He reveals his adaptation process, his loss of confidence after directing Bridge to Nowhere, and how had no idea what he was doing on Sleeping Dogs. He also warns of the dangers of being boring, and the challenges of pulling off a decent commercial. Two years after this documentary aired, Mune returned to glory with the release of his passion project The End of the Golden Weather.

If you try and do the safe version of movies or theatre — drama of any kind — you're doing the boring version, and the boring version nobody's going to come and watch. So the biggest risk is being boring.
– Ian Mune
