Directing allows me to channel neurosis into productivity. I am
rewarded for sorting through and refining every detail of a project
until each component speaks the same language and the finished
film communicates my message with fluency and cohesion.
When people watch my work and they get it, that’s as close
as anyone can come to reading my mind, knowing me to my
core, understanding me with robust and spiritual honesty.
Few other things make me feel more connected,
reminding me that I’m not just floating without purpose
in the world. There’s nothing more frustrating than a
life without context, and in filmmaking I find mine.
