Ive always known that I love directing but I was really aware of it while making Beginners. I am my happiest when Im on set directing. I am also my kindest. When the actors get in front of the camera, it makes them very vulnerable. I am so in love with them for trying so hard.

If Im looking at a client, I can say, Oh, wow, this is where youre weak; this is what you need to work on. I can correct her in a matter of seconds, and then shes practicing specifically on the thing she needs to work on instead of repeating the same mistakes. Having that feedback is essential for beginners.
