You never really know as an actor; it's completely out of your control, in terms of editing, and music, and film stock, shot selection, and what takes they use.
That's the thing about making a movie: You never finish editing. They just take it away from you.
I feel that working with the camera and editing it is actually my strong suit.
I've been writing for years and developing my own films and editing with a friend of mine in Australia.
I was not raised with films. And when Alain Resnais did the editing on my first film, he said, 'You should go to the Cinematheque.' I didn't even know we had one in Paris.
I'm a student. I want to do better, and I want directors who can find the actress in me and be my teachers. I'm interested in the whole process of editing, post-production and direction.
A lot of directors prefer the solitude of the editing process, but I revel in the craziness of what a film set is.
Once you sign on as an actor, you know, you don't go to the editing room, you don't see how they cut, you don't see how they score, you don't see how they cast the rest of the movie.
Movies become art after editing. Instead of just reproducing reality, they juxtapose images of it. That implies expression; that's art.
I'm so independent in writing stuff and controlling what I do. Sometimes I get calls from people asking to be in their movie, but I'm always writing or editing, and I can never get around to doing it. I'm so much more interested in my own stuff. I think I drive my agent crazy.
