Sam Jaeger Interview

Interview: Sam Jaeger Goes from ‘Parenthood’ to PTSD in the Harrowing ‘Plain Clothes’

Adapted From: stagebuddy.com

The one complaint I have is that Plain Clothes is so short.

(Laughs) Well, by its very nature, we figured we’d make a short film. So I’m sorry that from its very inception it was disappointing to you.

Were you planning at all on expanding Cole’s story?

Yeah, it’s a discussion we’re having right now, we’ve been talking to a number of networks about possibly expanding it into a series, maybe make a feature out of this, but we’re still in the early stages of that. The response we’ve had is that, as you said, people want to see more of that world. I think that means we’re onto something.

How was the process of writing Cole?

It was interesting, I didn’t expect to write Cole. He came from some conversations I’d had with some officers I know well and hearing their story I thought it was something I hadn’t seen. We talk so often about the struggles the military have, but rarely about the struggles the police have, like balancing their work with their home lives, they don’t go away for months at a time and then have to adjust, they come home every night. To me, that was really interesting for a film, so I wrote it pretty quickly, did some re-writes, and I had spent so long making Take Me Home that I liked the idea of doing a short film.

Why did you make your film available for free?

We just felt like the film festival is great for filmmakers who want to get their name out, but thanks to Parenthood my name is out, so what was most important to us was that the people who would benefit from a short film like this would have immediate access. We’ve had a police trainer already ask us if they could use our film as part of their training, and that’s the reason why I wanted to make it available for everyone.

Why do you think that PTSD, which is a serious mental issue, is discussed so little in popular culture?

That’s a good question, strangely enough, I think it has to do with the mentality of the officers, in both the military and the police;  they’re trained to keep up, protect themselves and in order to keep this up, I don’t want to isolate female officers, but I think there’s something of a mentality of masculinity, where men are not allowed to show or process their emotions, and I think that’s a pretty slippery slope. I want my film to be the start of a conversation about this.

I agree and I believe American Sniper was aiming to address this, but then it got turned into a big political, controversial issue and people didn’t talk about the PTSD elements in it.

Yeah, it’s been so much about the personal storyline of Chris Kyle and that takes away from what I feel the movie did really well, which was talking about this, you see some really harrowing stuff, and in the conversations I’ve had with officers about the things they see, I realized that it’s a really hard thing to walk away from at the end of the day. There’s a reason why the police divorce rate is 80%, it’s hard to balance, and all the scrutiny on officers right now should make us look at how they’re trained. Officers have a job that needs to be done, and I think it’s an important one, so we should make sure they’re mentally healthy.
