I grew up in a working-class family, so I guess you could say I write from what I know.
I wonder whether my bleak-o-meter is set differently from other people’s.
I’m fascinated with what an audience will take away from an image.
Films are all about decisions, and that’s what I love.
I deliberately never read about films before I see them.
I work best when there is adversity: I seem to get calmer the more the fur is flying.
I do believe some people can naturally act and don’t know it.
I find it kind of weird that directors want to put themselves in their films.
I don’t think you can question your instinct; you should always trust it.
I am obsessed with why people turn out the way they are.
Whenever I get fed up with life I love to go wandering in nature.
As long as you keep your budgets small, there’s a way of making films.
Sometimes when you’re going fast, your instincts can be very useful.
Every time I start a film I feel like I’m starting the first time, ever.
Once I’ve finished a film I just want to get on and make another one.
I want to try and be instinctive as a writer and director.
Usually, I make such small-budget films that I can’t afford to buy weather.
I always get quite close to my script because I work quite hard on them.
I was never that comfortable in front of the camera, it always terrified me.
