CGarchitect caught up with Joe Kosinski for a phone interview about his directorial debut on TRON: Legacy. Below is a transcript of that interview.

CGA: Now that you’ve directed your first major motion picture and you look back at the path that you’ve taken from architecture to commercials and game cinematics – is this where you always thought you’d end up?  And is this where you’re going to be for a while now?

Joe Kosinski: Yeah, I guess I would say I didn’t necessarily always think I would end up here.  I grew up loving movies as a kid, but grew up in an area where no one I knew actually worked in the entertainment business.  So as a career it never really seemed like a real possibility.  So it has been a very organic path for me – obviously starting with these parallel interests in music and engineering, which eventually for me I felt architecture might be that ultimate combination of the creative and technical sides of things that I was interested in.

And then going to an architecture school, Columbia, where they gave us all these digital tools and filmmaking tools to learn design, and using those tools; realizing that I could make my own films on my own; leveraging these tools in a really powerful way.  It’s been a very kind of organic path, but I do feel like in the end I’ve ended up in the right place.  And it’s obviously a job that I love and is challenging, and I love to continue working.............................................
