Personal Quote:

[on film-making] I am very preparatory. But this is like having kids or something: if you knew what you were into from the start, you'd never do it. But then you fall in love a little bit more each day, and you keep marching forward and every day is fun. As long as you don't look at the whole thing at once. See more »
