VNDL: Describe your work/process AN: I guess my works are random stuff. I never plan the whole shooting or the composition of each shot in advance.

Movies are my big passion – I watch all kinds of them from festival low budget to hollywood trash. The one I’ve watched recently is The Hunt by Thomas Vinterberg. The book I’m reading now is Rabbit, Run by John Updike. I think that the author has really cinematographic point of view – so you can literally see the image he describes clearly. Where do you see yourself in 5 years? In 5 years I see myself in cadillac with bunch of chicks. It will be the best year of my life. Who is or where does your inspiration come from?
