Sparknote: On Directing

1. Don’t worry about a career, but to simply try to figure out what I wanted to do with my life and somehow I would make a living doing it.

2. As a director, I make many more compromises.

3. Directing is ultimately about having an opinion and making sure that your opinion is consistent.

4. As long as you are willing to walk away, then you are in control.

5. if things are out of your control, then the actors and the crew and the producers will just eat you alive.
