Personal Quotes (1)

With a movie, you can make a more streamlined, focused statement. You have a very contained time-frame to really make an impact, and you can really punch someone in the gut in a two-hour movie. In television, you're exploring an idea and living within an idea in a way that has multiple impacts but that may not have the level of lasting impact that you get with a movie. Both are really challenging and really fun to make.
