But I’ll tell you what I found in it. I love studying people. And I realized that this man sees like no other person I’ve ever known. I think his own vision is hyper, so when he’s doing a take, he’s seeing everything on that screen all at once. I mean, it’s almost like some kind of alien. And until all those things line up, he’s not happy. But he is brilliant at getting the perfect shot. So once I realized that it’s not me, or it’s not Ben —it could be a napkin turned the wrong way, he’s just looking at every little detail in the scene— so once I realized that, I was ready to go with it. He is the master, man. He is just great. I loved working with him. I learned how to make a movie, number one. I was just soaking everything up. I was paying attention to every move, every word, everything he was saying when he’d talk to the camera people, the DP —just the level of communication and director-speak was awesome. It makes me want to approach [my next project] with just a little more patience.
