October 22, 1969
I like naps. I don't drink coffee.
I am better at math than spelling.
Me and my friends had BMX magazines and skate magazines, and I was a photographer who made skate videos.
The world is becoming nicer and easier, but that doesn't mean we are any less lonely or any more connected.
I like hiring people based on a feeling - this person gets it - rather than what they've done in the past.
After 'Where The Wild Things Are,' which was this big, long five-year project, I spent a year making small things.
I think the thing that is meaningful is when I can tell that someone's been affected by the movie or by anything I made.
I want to make films without a single clear message, and films that are as close as possible to what it feels like to be alive. At least to me.
I like people that define their own values. I am much more interested in somebody who has their own definition of what they value, their own definition of what success is, their own definition of what love is.
I started directing videos at the same time that Michel Gondry was starting to direct videos, and I watched what he'd do. They all seemed to be pushing some new visual effects idea, but never just for spectacle. They all captured a feeling.
