As I said yesterday, I used to be able to shoot wherever, whenever.  This was partly due to the fact that I was young and invincible, and partly due to the fact that I just didn’t care what the movie looked like.

I realize I need to take my time, now.  Run & gun just won’t cut it anymore.  I have to start taking time for lighting, composition, rehearsals.
