This chapter presents an interview with filmmaker Anton Corbijn. Corbijn began his career as a photographer. Moving to London in 1979, his photographs of the leading post-punk bands established him as the photographer of choice for the NME. He later ventured into the burgeoning music video field where he mastered the medium; and given his keen eye and affiliation with music it seemed a thoroughly natural progression to turn his hand to feature-film directing with Control (2007). His second feature was the existential hitman drama The American (2010). The interview covered topics such as the reasons why he changed his mind and directed Control after originally declining the project; what connotation the title of the film has for Corbijn; and his financing of the film.
