"I DON'T THERE WAS A "LIGHTBULB MOMENT" FOR ME.
I DON'T REMEMBER A TIME WHEN I WAS EVER GOING TO DO ANYTHING DIFFERENT OTHER THAN MAKE FILMS."
- talking with MetFilm
"I feel that my favourite movies seem to change as I get older. But of course, I realise the movies haven't changed - my personal input has. We take from a movie what we invest emotionally. It's an idea that's always stuck with me."
"I've tried to pin a reason on why I started making movies for ages and I still can't figure it out. I genuinely can't remember ant time at any age where I wasn't shooting something. It started animating LEGO motorbikes, and now we're here orchestrating motorbike stunts for real. A part of me blames my Godmother Sam for showing me the behind-the-scenes of the original Pirates of the Caribbean - you don't watch that as a youngster and spend the rest of your life thinking "I want to be an accountant". (Nothing against accountants.)
