All it takes is one quick Google search to see that Mark Bristol is a low-key Hollywood Legend. From Dazed and Confused to The Chronicles of Narnia and the Mission: Impossible franchise, there isn’t a director or actor he hasn’t worked with. What’s most surprising about his extensive resume, however, is that he’s almost exclusively worked as a storyboard artist…until now.


Accidental Texan marks Bristol’s second time directing a feature film in 20 years. And the road to making the film is both incredible and inspiring.


While you can read the review for the film here, our very own Dempsey Pillot got the chance to speak to Bristol about his journey in an exclusive interview.



Accidental Texan follows an actor who finds himself stranded in Texas, taken under the wing of a nearly bankrupt oil driller Merle. Together, the two set off on a wild adventure to outwit a corrupt oil company to hit pay dirt before Merle's dreams are foreclosed.
