It would be great to make a film that would work great for an audience no matter how they saw it…be it on their iPod or laptop or on the big screen or whatever. Ultimately though, I’m pretty old-school. There’s nothing like that communal experience of sitting in a darkened theater with a group of strangers and going on a journey together…one that takes over your senses with its sheer scope and thereby pulls you — hook, line and sinker — into another world. That is an experience that I cherish and it is the way that I would love for audiences to experience my films. It is the experience I have in mind when I’m developing, shooting, editing, mixing and mastering my work.
