In the end I don’t choose the material, the material chooses me. You get an emotion rather like the way music can affect you. And then you know you are going to do it. With any project, the challenge is to put that initial emotional response that you had at that first reading on the screen.
You can’t define the emotion because it’s like a ripple through your body. It’s like describing how you feel when you hear Mozart - moved. Touched. It’s something so strong that it can sustain you for a minimum of twelve months of production and dealing with hundreds of people and practical problems.
