"Art making is a form of alchemy, in a way, because you are trying…to make gold from nothing. When it works very well is when you manage to turn the ordinary into the extraordinary."
"I came up with the idea of having a story as a kind of framework to plug elements into, to let the characters have a place to exist and to grow, and to give context to the different sensibilities that the characters have. So, in essence, the story is the glue that holds everything together."
