I was able to shoot a movie like 'Tree of Life' because I had done 'Y Tu Mama Tambien.' The camera needed to capture that sense of freedom and joy and life you have when you're young.
For each movie that I do, I like to find a specific language to tell the specific story.
I can tell you that going to the Oscars is not as exciting as people think, at least for me.
I did sound for a number of years, so I know the pain of the sound mixer on a set where everybody was talking.
I don't miss film projecting. I always hated it.
I have two daughters, and they grew up and wanted to get into Instagram, and I didn't know anything about social media. I started it to learn about what they were starting to do and how they communicate with their friends. I opened an account. Very fast, in a few hours, I realized that I actually liked it.
