If I start paying attention to the mechanics of a film while watching it, then it's generally a bad film.
I try to make a film that's very entertaining, very funny, but also gives you something to think about. And the strongest thing I have to offer is my point of view, to get across how I see the world in hopes that it can change the way other people see the world, hopefully for the better.
I was inspired to do anything I could to get out of what I was doing... today, I'm motivated to pay the bills.
Because I found myself telling the story of his family to people without the visual aids that I was able to employ by filming them eventually. But I very much knew exactly what I was going to do.
