On his career path :
“I started acting when I was a kid, but I quit for a few years and went to college to figure out if a film career was what I really wanted. For my 21st birthday, I bought video-editing software, and as I stayed up all night playing around with it, I realized there”s nothing I enjoy more than making movies.”
On his favorite film:
“[“Dumbo” is] one of the first movies that I remember seeing with my mother. That scene where Dumbo”s mom reaches through the cage bars and cradles him in her trunk So classic. I still put it on now and then, and always have a good cry.”
On his stress-free lifestyle:
“One of the most important things I”ve learned from directing is how to manage when things don”t go according to plan. No matter how much I prepare, I try to remain open to the unexpected instead of panicking.”
