As a storyteller, director Richard Linklater likes to play with the passage of time. For his acclaimed recent film "Boyhood," shooting lasted 12 years in order to tell the story of a boy who ages from 6 to 18. The director tells Jeffrey Brown why his conversational movies aren’t improvised and how he’s built a career by making small-budget, personal films.
