Steven Soderbergh - Sigh

I’ve been in meetings where I can feel it slipping away, where I can feel like there are ideas I’m tossing out are, I don’t know, they’re too scary or they’re too weird, and I can feel the thing, I can tell it’s not going to happen. I’m not going to convince them to do this the way I think it should be done, and I want to jump up on the table and scream and go, ‘Do you know how lucky we are to be doing this? Do you understand that the only way to repay that karmic debt is to make something good? Is to make something ambitious? Something beautiful? Something memorable?
