  • Cinema has become a global economy, totally international.
  • My father would tell anyone who would listen that this dentist thing he was doing was not his passion; cinematography was.

  • To see my wife getting inspired from my notes and thoughts, going in the direction I wanted, and have her surprise me with wonderful choices was a real treat.
  • I can't go back and label myself as an outcast because I was a pretty well-adjusted kid, but I can certainly relate to the feeling of being an outsider.

  • I love mixing amateurs and professionals.
  • I love improvising.
  • I love involving actors at all levels - and they have to know that I want to hear their contributions, with dialogue, with story suggestions, with script changes, whatever.
