Personal Quote:

On the film, "Louisiana Story;" I saw that when we were using small cameras, we had tremendous flexibility, we could do anything we wanted and get a wonderful sense of cinema. The moment we had to shoot dialogue--lip sync--everything had to be locked down, the nature of the film changed. See more »
