Even in our business, as is the world, we are in the age of specialisation. You see a lot of names of producers on a movie. If you have the idea, if you oversee the development, if you oversee the production, if you help package the movie, you sell the movie – you can be a producer. There’s not a lot of us who do the whole gamut.
I came from advertising. For me it’s about protecting the director’s vision. That’s always the goal. There’s keeping things on budget and on time and dealing with selling the movie so that to me is a focus. But also it’s about serving the script. We are genre filmmakers, those are the films we love to make, so my perspective is a little different.
