” When I see an image in my head that compels me, where there’s this mystery about what’s going to happen next or could happen next, I’ll be intrigued. There are so many scripts that you read, and you know exactly what’s going to happen, and there aren’t too many where you can’t tell within the first 20 pages where it’s going. “


” Have you seen McConaughey in ‘Unsolved Mysteries?’ Even back then, it’s a great performance! And he’s mowing the lawn. “


” When you have a script, and you’re discussing what it can be, and who going to play what role, that’s a kind of like a fantasy football game. You can imagine these different dream teams interpreting these characters that only exist in your head. “


” As storytellers, you’re always somehow creating history. “

” The problem with being a writer/director: unless you’re really disciplined, you start adding projects, and you have to make time to make them. Because you have to write them… no one else is writing them for me. “


” In terms of tackling different subjects, I can’t really think of anything I wouldn’t want to try, that’s the fun of it right? Each new style brings new challenges – not that you shouldn’t focus on one and master it, but it takes so long to make a film, you just want to have some variety. “


” In TV, you have no time and sort of just carpet bomb the scene with as many angles as possible as quickly as possible and find it in the edit. “


” The theoretical casting part of movies is the funnest part. You really can imagine so many different versions of a story based on who’s embodying it. “


” Obviously, a lot of TV shows are based on chronological episode viewing, and the stories are contingent upon watching it in order. Syndicated shows, you don’t have to watch in order. You’re just watching characters that don’t change that much. “


” You need the actors to feel as much ownership of the performance and the direction of the story as you do to get the most out of everyone’s potential. Part of it is just making sure we all have the same vision. “


” If you’re directing, it doesn’t really matter any more if it’s going straight to TV – what matters is whether you have the resources to make a story that moves you. “


” Increasingly, there’s much better material on television, but there’s not always the time and money to make it, so you’ve got to make sure you make it in the right place. It also depends on time commitment, a lot of directors will make a pilot, but a series is just a whole other level of involvement. “
