I'm not a pessimist

Creative Process

"I'm not a pessimist,  I'm an optimist with experience." 


Passion for Storytelling

"I'm interested in the kind of passionate, obsessive storytelling that goes into the geekiest of sci-fi science fiction." 



"If you set your goals ridiculously high and it's a failure, you will fail above everyone else's success." 


Embracing Challenges

"The things that scare you are usually the most worthwhile."


Vision and Persistence

"You have to be willing to take risks; you have to be willing to put yourself on the line. If you want to create something, you're going to create against all odds." 


On Filmmaking

"Filmmaking, like any other art, is a very profound means of human communication; beyond the professional pleasure of succeeding or the pain of failing, you do want your film to be seen,  to communicate itself  to other people." 

Collaborative Spirit

"I think it's often better to work through the people around you, using their strengths to your advantage, rather than focusing on your own weaknesses." 


Storytelling Impact

"People call me a perfectionist, but I'm not. I'm a rightist. I do something until it's right, and then I move on to the next thing."


Learning from Setbacks

"Failure is an option; if things are not failing, you are not innovating enough."
