“I wanted to do a visually-crafted movie. I wanted it to be very quiet, and very formal, and very classic in its aesthetic approach. And I hadn't been seeing these. I thought, where are the directors who know their lenses? There's so much of this handheld free-for-all. I got frustrated, then I thought, instead of me bitching and moaning about it, why not go and do something? Something that I can showcase for audiences, and see if they respond?”
