Quotations and aphorisms by Derek Waters:
People are proud to be from Baltimore. In any industry you work in, you need support to survive. And this city has that support for anyone who was born here or lived here. And it also gives you the feeling, ‘Oh, I stand for this place. And if I do something I’m not proud of, I might not make my town proud.’ And I want to make Baltimore proud.
My dream is to be able to make something in Baltimore that’s just there. Make a movie or make a show there. I only left because there wasn’t any opportunity except being an extra in Barry Levinson or John Waters movies.
