Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

The big difference is the size of the crew and the flexibility of shooting because of the size. I mean, it's crazy. So you can't improvise, you cannot suddenly do something that comes to mind, whereas in a small production you have much more flexibility. See more »

Trivia:

George Lucas persuaded him to direct two episodes of The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles (1992) even though he had first declined. The two have been good friends ever since. See more »
