“We’re in 100 percent digital film space now. I think the industry has to accept that this is like the transition to talkies — it’s massive and it’s game-changing and it’s happening. You can say “talkies are a gimmick and I’m a silent film man,” but your career is effectively over once you’ve made that decision. Fundamentally these ever-changing tools are just a way to enhance our creative process. I don’t know how to use any of this stuff, but what I’ve discovered is that my ignorance is a real asset — I don’t know anything about the limitations of the technology, so I can expect it can do whatever I imagine. And usually that’s the ideal relationship to have with engineers and technologists, because they love the challenge to create under the pressure of a creative demand.”
