I filmed Philip Seymour Hoffman on January 17, 2014 speaking to all the media on the red carpet premiere at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival of his film God’s Pocket.

“The fear of missing out left me 20 years ago.” – Philip Seymour Hoffman

“It’s (God’s Pocket) a film about a man who is faced by an adult decision ultimately and he grows up. It’s not about adolescence it’s about a guy who has to deal with being an adult and It’s hard. He’s living with a world that is pretty shady and he grows up.”

Talking about his film characters: “…eventually you come to a day and say this is really difficult. Sometimes you think things will be easy, then you think it isn’t easy at all.”

Talking about the God’s Pocket character: “He’s my age and I think he’s dealing with issues that have to do with issues being middle-aged. You realize some choices you made along the way have to change or else you’re just going to kind of stay in the dark.”

Philip Seymour Hoffman’s family statement: “We are devastated by the loss of our beloved Phil and appreciate the outpouring of love and support we have received from everyone. This is a tragic and sudden loss and we ask that you respect our privacy during this time of grieving. Please keep Phil in your thoughts and prayers.”
