"That experience gave me a lot of confidence in the validity of working without a program, without the ‘essay’ being written in advance. So I made a decision I would never ever write a script, I would never write a storyboard, I would never ever write a proposal on the basis that even if I wrote them, the act of codifying like that some-how killed the project."
