A film always starts with a visual idea. For instance, a music comedy ABOUT LAST NIGHT started with this scene in my mind: a young woman makes it home after a long day at work. She's exhausted, she throws away her bag and her coat, she slides down right on the floor. She doesn't have any energy to walk, so she crawls to her kitchen where she takes a shot of Tequila which brings her back to life. The funny thing is that the scene of her crawling looked too awkward and didn't make it into the final cut, but the film was born out of it. We don't see the seed, but the plant is right here.
Speaking of inspiration in general, I just have to make sure I'm inspired by everything life has to offer. Reading books, seeing films, observing strangers, enjoying gossiping with friends, having good wine and good sex. When you stay curious and keep feeding your brain with new things, you can't help it but want to create, share your thoughts and communicate through art.
