documentary filmmaking: "making a documentary is similar to the process of researching for a fictional film"
film adaptation: "it felt boring to adapt my short "Short Term 12"--and even like plagiarism--into a feature film" without making it into something new
budget limitations:"constraints spark creativity"
screenwriting: "the purpose of every word is to put a picture into someone's brain"
capturing actors: following the actor's lead until it is "happening...to be in the moment"
