Now, because of this big backdrop that we've given ourselves, these little personal, human details take on a whole new context and give us opportunities for comedy.— Jason Winer
The most passioned Jason Winer quotes that are little-known but priceless
I'm eager to do movies of different genres.
I would love to not be confined by genre and do a lot of different things.
I think back to the Modern Family pilot when we didn't know that Julie Bowen had a spotty party girl past, but that's something that we layered in, throughout the first season. That's just part of the fun of series television. You get to discover these things.
I like letting takes play out, beginning to end.
I don't like doing pick-ups of one line or another. I like letting the actors discover the flow of the scene, inside the scene as a whole.
You have to move really fast, as a director in television.
If you're able to keep things moving on set, everybody has more fun, and when everybody has more fun, the end result is funnier.
