If I've seen the movie, it means it's an influence on my own filmmaking. Every movie has a reflection in 'Night Watch.'
I think the most important technique is to ground everything, to make everything - to make fantasy world grounded and relatable, just great characters.
If you know exactly what your character knows, it's a drama.
It's a big problem for American movies that all their movies are produced to be global.
Good fighters, they are so professional and quick, you can't see what's happening. It's very important: the fight is like a dialogue. Everybody has a line and an answer.
Every commercial covers different ground, different ideas, and it's my profession to direct and to tell stories - for me, it's very organic.
I also have experience working with American producer Roger Corman who knows a lot of secrets in making movies look bigger than their budget.
'Night Watch' itself is a very Russian movie. It's impossible to imagine this kind of movie somewhere else: a movie with a depressing ending, a lot of inexplicable storylines, strange characters. It's a Russian reflection of American film culture.
