Joe Connor for Wait

Way back during Cripple of Inishmaan, Dan did a video for Flaunt Magazine called Wait. The director Joe Connor discussed what it was like to work with Daniel on the video and how the concept of that video was made.

A good actor should be able to convey a certain feeling without the use of words or special effects. I like to think this was the idea behind Joseph Connor’s short he did with Killing the Darlings star and Gryffindor alum Daniel Radcliffe. In this short 2-minute video a familiar old timey voiced narrator sets the mood giving a sort of pep talk to Mr. Radcliffe in what looks like the setting of a dressing room.

The entire video was shot in only eight minutes and edited down to two for Flaunt Magazine. I had the chance to reach out to Joe with a few questions about the short. Here’s what he had to say.

Joe’s Daily: Was it your first time working with Daniel?

Joseph Connor: It was the first time I’d worked with him – first time I’d met him to be honest. He was completely relaxed about the whole process. He was busy shooting some of the amazing stills that went with the campaign for Flaunt (http://www.flaunt.com/people/daniel-radcliffe/) and they brought me in to shoot a short with him as I’ve worked a with a lot of British actors, we just grabbed a few minutes at the end to chat about some ideas.

JD: Did Daniel have any input or let you direct him 100% from your own ideas?

JC: The short came from a loose conversation we had about fear, that feeling that you are waiting for someone or something. Dan mentioned a few moments that this had happened to him and drew on that and then I just let him do his thing. We sort of played this very simple game between Dan and the camera and the action of looking – it was very simple which is how I like to work…. he’s such a skilled actor (It blew me away actually, how intense he can become) that after that initial conversation my only direction came through how I positioned the lens and he just reacted to it instinctively, giving me what I wanted. I’m a big fan of letting actors be, giving them small games to play and letting them stare into the lens if it feels natural and that final moment just grew organically and I think it shows in how honest that look is.
