When I am asked to produce something that I have never done before it is like being a kid with a new toy.
The toy is the idea. When you have the toy in front of you have a vehicle for play. Then come the Instructions, usually followed with leaving them in the box whilst you try to work it out yourself. This being usually longer but you have no concept of doing it any other way.
Until you sit down, scratch your head and look at the instructions. Then you think you know exactly how to assemble the toy.
When you go to play with the toy it does not always work, but this is great, the learning, playing, solving bit.
Every time you play with the toy you encounter different ways to play with it, until you realise that your imagination is actually the only limitation.
This is one of the things I love about filming, I get to play everyday.
