It could be worse.
I’m a filmmaker. But I don’t give a shit about films.
Can you not give a shit about films?
It’s like watching a rock film and not wanting to watch it – and then you see the film.
The first thing I have to ask that I know is I have an A-level film education?
I’m not gonna say what A-level, because that’s like asking what year of high school you went to. My degree is film.
I don’t want to talk about things that are about what film degree I received, and you want to know what my work looks like? No.
So is your work about other things that were your passions?

A lot of people do come along and say film is something I didn’t care about. I was passionate about films. I was deeply curious and I wanted to learn more and more.
Do you love the writing side of it?

So it is interesting that the camera movements in your work – even the way a camera moves is interesting.
So many times when you hear directors say something about the film, “I have to keep this in check.” – it does seem that you care about camera movements when you were working.
Well, they did care for me, but I really didn’t pay attention to it. I got to be in the control room, and I was watching my fingers, watching my head turn.
We were working so many years for no pay and so many hours, and I was really focused on what the director wanted. I could see he wanted it, and I was not paying attention to that.
So I’d say I watched a few things. I got a little bit involved with the story, I think a little bit
