You can t, in sound morals, condemn a man for taking care of his own integrity.

It is his clear duty. And least of all can you condemn an artist pursuing, however humbly and imperfectly, a creative aim.

Who then is going to say Nay to his temptations if not his conscience?

A lot of the music video stuff I've worked on is mostly me pitching ideas, and then if [the artists] have notes or thoughts, I'll integrate them into the idea.

You collaborate with actors who are also talented and visionary and come together on a artistic direction within the confines of humanity and realism. The collaboration that you have had with all of these people plays an integral role in its final stage where editing and music are combine to enhance your work. This whole process is very rewarding and I wouldn't trade it for anything.

I glory in the fact that a human being has multiple talents and exercises them all with a degree of integrity and artistic proficiency. That's what I do.
