I was once booed off the stage (cafeteria floor) at a nursing home. I was supposed to be some afternoon entertainment. I sang a few songs, they yelled, “How ‘bout some dancing?” I gave it a go. Several of them started wheeling themselves outta the room. #tbt

"The less money you take, the more freedom you have. I’ve never made a film where I don’t have final cut. And I can’t imagine doing that. That just seems like it would be turmoil. I edit because that’s where you learn how to direct, really. All the answers of what you should have done are in the editing. I miss out on being able to be in a conversation with someone, and I can see where that can be a really valuable thing—to have someone with more of a distance to be having a dialogue with. You write alone, and scouting is really lonely. Then you do this really intense thing with a lot of people. Afterwards, I usually feel like I want to hide away with my film again and go through the process of making sure that every possible thing has been tried. I’m a big believer in letting your film be bad for a while, and not trying to get to a good cut too quickly. I just want to be involved and I want that process, because it makes me think of what lens I should have used or what I should have done. It’s such a learning experience that I hate to miss out on it."

50ish year old sunburned billy idol haired guy at table next to me in coffee shop is telling a wide-eyed 25 year old that if he wants to be a “permanent staff member at the gym,” he needs “to step up his game” and “stop hanging out with the going nowhere part timers like Luke and Derek.”
