“Great directors are masters of controlled chaos, the controlled chaos behind any movie from conception to release.”


  • Angelina Jolie (Unbroken)
  • Christopher Nolan (Interstellar)
  • Richard Linklater (Boyhood)
  • Mike Leigh (Mr. Turner)
  • Bennett Miller (Foxcatcher)
  • Morten Tyldum (The Imitation Game)

These are giants. Wonderful tips shared in both conversations.

  • Danny Elfman (Big Eyes)
  • John Powell (How To Train Your Dragon 2)
  • Trent Reznor (Gone Girl)
