“Everyone, when they start coming up and studying film, they want to be a director or writer-director and I think there’s a lack of ability to really show people who are interested in being in the entertainment field from sound mixers, production designers, or costume designers; the ability to show that there’s more than being a director and these contributions from other fields are important. If those options could be more exposed, then you would see more people doing what I do.”
