'Blue Ruin' Director-Writer-Cinematographer: "I Needed More Days"

To make his low-budget thriller Blue Ruin, director-writer-cinematographer Jeremy Saulnier talks about how he took control of his film. "I see so many directors without that opportunity to work a scene … I needed more days," he said. "No 18-day schedule for me. I do 30 days. A key component was owning the camera."
