  • I've had people working for me who are film-school graduates and honestly, if they had been clapper boys or tea boys they probably would have learned more.
  • Editing makes or breaks a movie, you know.
  • Sex is not necessary to make a movie sell. It's enough to have a pretty girl in the movie.
  • I often sneak into the cinema and watch how the audience are reacting to my movie. It teaches me so much.
