It was a thrill to interview James Ward Byrkit, the director and writer of Coherence, which has rocked our collective glowsticks since 2013. 




Byrkit has now released the first four episodes of Shatter Belt, a mind-bending TV series that explores reality, meaning, and consciousness.

In this interview, we discuss his artistic journey since Coherence and then pivot to Shatter Belt talk, including his favorite Twilight Zone episode, the themes he wanted to explore in this new series, and his strategy to help actors adapt to a more naturalistic acting style.
