Objectivity

Production

I know that, especially in this community, the world of production seems to be moving more and more to the one-man-show approach. And yes, sometimes it's nice to keep the proverbial dicks out of the soup, but as a director I really value having my people around me. Read More

Bokeh bokeh. Bollocks. This whole issue...Read More
