If you wait until the right time to have a child you'll die childless, and I think film making is very much the same thing. You just have to take the plunge and just start shooting something even if it's bad.
Do the right thing. It will gratify some people and astonish the rest.
The decisive moment in human evolution is perpetual. That is why the revolutionary spiritual movements that declare all former things worthless are in the right, for nothing has yet happened.
Observe due measure, for right timing is in all things the most important factor.

I didn't know what types of movies I wanted to do. I want to do things that are different. I want to take my time with each role.
