Personal Quotes (2)

I believe film scoring to be the third dimension in a two dimensional medium
My ideal situation would be to do a few larger films but always keep working on independents because you're given a lot more freedom. It's much more difficult to take big risks when you're on a $50 million film than on a $3 million film. You kind of have to weigh everything and find the opportunities where they are. Ideally, I'd love to keep doing both.
