TV Slightly

The pace is different on a film set. It's slightly slower, allowing for a little more wiggle room. Sometimes there is a bit more room to explore and work on the floor.

- Joel C. Rosenberg

Love Very

When somebody who makes movies for a living - either as an actor, writer, producer or director - lives to be a certain age, you have to admire them.

- John Carpenter

- Jojo Moyes

Feels Became

You show people playing poker or hacking into a computer; it feels so significant in the script, and then when you see it on the screen, it loses something. But there's something about cooking - food being prepared is incredibly captivating. It became just a fun box of tools to use as a director.
