WKW circa 2000

"'The way we make films is very organic - it's not a product. It's not like saying, 'OK, we've finished a film and a film should be like this for ever.' I think some day we can go back and we can grow something out of it.' Projects cross-pollinate and, like collapsed trees in a forest feeding new growth, one film seems to fall through just so that others can sprout off it."
