Flashback: Panic Room

That’s the job. That’s what it is. Doing cool stuff like designing shots is 1 percent of your life. The other 99 percent is holding everything together while there’s total fucking chaos, maximizing the amount of hours that you have in order to get stuff, pulling shit out of your ass to fix things, being able to work on your toes. It’s not all about going [framing a shot with his hands], ‘We’ll do this, and then we’ll do that.’ Well, now do it with a fucking Teamsters strike, with 150 people who are exhausted, who think that everything you’re doing is, you know, gilding a lily -- ‘You don’t need that shot.’ I love when people say that.
