Production Design

"She [Patricia Norris] is production designer and in charge of costume design. With regard to the costumes, I hardly ever say anything to her, the things just blow out right of her. But when it comes to set design. Well, we always talk about everything.
I try to get her in tune with the thing I'm tuning into and so the thing flows, and then we just keep a constant dialogue going. But, the design of each and everything is important if the whole film is to hold together."

"There's no compromise possible. You keep looking until you find the place that will work for the story. And that holds for the objects, too. Many places are painted or rearranged, new furniture is brought in. You cant make compromises. Compromises kill the film. "
