Ben Boothe and Victor Waumett interviewed him and found him an intelligent, responsive and helpful movie maker, with brilliant insights as to the future of the film industry.
"A large number of films that are made, in the world today are influenced by New Mexico, it's talent, scenery, and unique features that make it of appeal for movie makers". he said.
"One of the things I enjoy is teaching, but I am working on two new projects". Peter is one of those movie makers that does not mind auditioning talent for short parts, "in hopes that we identify talent for future longer parts".
We asked him why he came to New Mexico, after a successful career in Britain. "My wife. She loves the museum world, arts and so on, and she fell in love with Santa Fe. So we have our home in Santa Fe and love New Mexico."
He is another example, of talent that has been kidnapped by the charm of New Mexico for the movie making business.
