“I kind of joke with myself that you shouldn’t be able to be a creative producer if you weren’t a first AD. Because it is such fantastic training for really understanding what everyone does, and how the movie actually gets made. You have to know if you’re the first you’re kind of the set general, you’re at the director’s right hand, you know everything about how a director puts a movie together, you know everything about how a movie gets made.”
