"I am always striving to deepen my understanding of all the various aspects of filmmaking; shooting, directing, editing, acting, design, audio, etc. The more we understand the process, and the role each of us play in that process, the better we're able to communicate and collaborate with others. Filmmaking is a herculean effort which requires a team, all working together to make something great, and to that end, the better we understand the whole, the better the work will be."
