My father used to say to me, "Show 'em what you can do, and don't worry about what you're gonna get. Say you'll work for free and make yourself invaluable."
I love every aspect of the creation of motion photos and I guess I am committed to it for life.
I've never met a genius. A genius to me is someone who does well at something he hates. Anybody can do well at something he loves - it's just a question of finding the subject.
I tried being reasonable, I didn't like it.
You should never give up your inner self.
I'm a mentor to anybody who's interested.
If a person doesn't change, there's something really wrong with him.
I keep working because I learn something new all the time.
