"I design my shots. I walk the rehearsal as the camera and say 'this is where I want to be... I want this look.'
It feels like choreography.
I use something that is a real staple in the directing world. It's called a dance floor. You lay it down so that it's so smooth you can roll around, and you can put furniture on top of it. It's seamless and you don't see it."
"We use this in the shot where Elizabeth is waiting forever for Husband to come.
It's just one shot, panned and dollied with her all through the room.
Then we sit down and we lock. I designed light changes so that it goes from evening dusk to evening to late night into early morning when she gets up. It's one shot."
