In-terms of exceptions, I want to always think about content from an audience point of view, I like my actors and my camera to perform for an audience point of view, to give them an experience of a story. So most of my work and efforts are always to achieve that sublime state of getting it emotionally and dramatically right for an audience. So what you can expect is a story that is both emotionally charged and dramatically thrilling to watch,” he added.
