It took a while for me to grasp that my colleagues believe I have made an impact on the history of cinema.
I want to tell a story and shape it all the way through to the end.
I hope I’m still shooting when I’m 80.
But you know you haven’t done it all because you know everything keeps evolving and changing; and you know you can evolve with it if you grow and develop as a human being.

In aptitude tests, I scored highest in music.
