Walking, exploring new places or watching a good film. Most of all though i just love hanging out with my family. There is nowhere i'd rather be.
Not from a movie but i think Stanley Kubrick's "I do not always know what I want, but I do know what I don't want" is very relevant to what we do.
Burgers! Just bought a new grill and so its burgers every night. Pizza is my favorite meal ever though. With pineapple.
Talent or Tech
Both go hand in hand to create amazing VFX work. Neither can operate without the other. This has always been the case and i don't see it ever changing. Unless DALL-E 2 takes over and then tech..... but its still drawing from work created by talent.... and was created by talent.
