Personal Quote:

My work will not be seen on screen the way I want it to if I'm forced to compromise my tools and my integrity. I can't short-change my director by taking a chance that the perfect shot is going to be ruined because we're using a format of lesser quality than film. See more »

Trivia:

Caught the film bug after seeing Shamus (1973) with Burt Reynolds being shot on location in his New York neighborhood when he was just a 10-year-old boy. See more »
