“In writing a film, one has to be interested in the project. That is a prerequisite. In my case, I try to write the best I could. I work outside the mainstream so I do not get projects often. However, I have a regular job as professor. In that way, I can choose projects I want to write. My two jobs complement each other.” (The Cinema, The Daily Tribune Newspaper; The Cinema, Ezine Articles.com)
