|(how do you know when you have something good?): 'I just feel like the tuning fork that’s in my gut has been confirmed. When we sit down to make something, there is something that tells us whether or not we’re close to what the thing is in our head. I lean really heavily on references. I made this 86-page image bible -- from beginning to end of the movie in chronological order -- that included things like paintings and color palettes, and film stills. I tried to create a relationship to the material before we were on set.'
