It’s a bit of a mystery.
The first of Von Hanson’s iconic films was in 1997, but he never returned to the big screen again.
In fact, he hasn’t been in the business for over a decade.
He died in 2012.
While some fans are hopeful that the legendary director might return, he was a prolific producer.
The Von Hansson Collection, which is currently in the works, aims to chronicle his filmography.
So far, it’s amassed more than 3,000 hours of footage.
We spoke with the director’s son, Steve Hansons, to find out what the next chapter in his illustrious career will be.
What was the original plan with the Von Hansont Collection?
I always planned it to be a chronological collection of all of his films, and we always knew we wanted to make a bigger collection than we did.
But we had to have a budget to do it.
So we thought, What if we do this whole project as a big movie?
The idea of the collection is to tell the story of Von’s life, his life as a filmmaker, his love for filmmaking, his work with actors, his collaborations with artists, his films.
What I’m hoping for is that we can give the whole story to the public.
Are there any projects that you want to tell that we haven’t already heard about?
We want to make it more accessible to the general public, so we want to give them a better idea of what the Von’s films were about, so that they can connect with the story.
We want them to have the opportunity to be involved in the process of making a film.
I guess what we wanted is to do something really different.
We wanted to have it be a sort of cinematic diary of the life of Von.
There are some things that are not quite available.
There’s a few things that aren’t available because they’re just in a box somewhere.
I want people to be able to watch the Von films in their own home and enjoy them.
It’s kind of like a movie, but not the kind of movie that everybody would want to watch.
And I’m sure people will enjoy it, but we have to be mindful of the fact that we want this to be as accessible as possible.
It has to be available to everybody.
Is there anything that you would like to talk about with us?
I think that the Von Collection is something that I would be very happy to do with my son.
We had a conversation about the Von Honsons movies, and I just thought it would be fun to be in a way that could be as fun as possible for him to watch them.
I’m not sure that anyone can watch the films and have them be as meaningful as we could have made them.
But I’d love to be there for him.
I’d like him to be on the set of one of my movies and have a moment with him and talk about the film and be like, This is how it happened, this is how we made this film.
That’s something I’d be happy to share with him.
Is there anything else you’d like to add?
We’re in the middle of shooting the first film, and my son and I will be filming the second film.
He has a new film that he’s making, and he’s really excited about it.
He said, It’s going to be fun.
He’s going on a tour of the world.
We’ll be there to do a couple of days and then he’ll be home for the holidays.
But the Von collections are always a fun thing to do.
Is it hard to balance doing your own movies and working with other filmmakers?
It’s hard, but I’m grateful to the people that I work with that I have the chance to work with people that are just as talented and who are just the best.
They’re really good collaborators.
I have to say that I feel that we have some really great friends in the Von collection, and they help us with everything we do.
It doesn’t have to work in concert, and it doesn’t need to be all that expensive to do good movies.
What’s great about this is that it gives us a chance to go out and have fun with each other.
What does that mean?
It’s nice to have fun and to collaborate, and also have a great time doing it.
