#Quote
1Everyone has this image that I was just sitting on the couch, smoking a joint for the last decade... I had to build a company. To do what I want to, it needs to be sustainable. If you can keep the budgets low enough, you can pretty much guarantee success from a financial standpoint, and thus create sustainability. It took 10 years to put that shit together.
2I knew exactly what I was doing with Squeeze.... Squeeze is like a Truffaut movie, The 400 Blows. It's the same thing. It's just set in the 'hood with different-looking kids. Body Count was a job. That was a way to make a living.
3I can't create in Los Angeles. And there's not a big enough film scene in New York to make that worth my while. But here at home, I'm safe. It's like asking Woody Allen to make a movie outside of Manhattan. Boston is where I make films.
4Body Count was one big disaster after another... I was completely unprepared for working within the Hollywood system. I was 25 years old. Youngest person on set. Wasn't prepared for the intensity of what that really meant... I don't really want to get into it. It was a real disaster. Everyday was a disaster, and another disaster, until the disasters were over and we all went home.
