1. What's the last movie you loved and what was the last movie you hated? the last one i saw that i loved was ben russell's 16mm film black and white trypps number four, while i was watching it i thought maybe i was the first woman on the moon and the moon was a lonely manic stage for super super stardom. i think i was leaning all the way over in my seat. i can't think of something i hated, i really like to watch almost anything.

2. What's your guilty pleasure movie or TV show? i love to watch fast times at ridgemont high but i don't really feel guilty about it cuz it is such a perfectly crafted narrative. like balzac, fluffy and brilliantly balanced.

3. How'd you get into filmmaking? my mom gave me her sound super 8 when i was 15.

4. What's your fave piece of gear? a nagra for grace in design and functionality but i'd really love to own an acme optical printer.

5. What's the one thing you'd warn a new filmmaker NOT to do on their first film? i think you should not string it between skyscrapers and walk from one to the other on it a la philippe petit. but the word tightrope is fantastic
