Oh, yeah. The way I make films is so much about getting intimate with people, bonding with them, and having a good ole conversation. That is a big part. There's the verite, where I just follow the scene, but a lot of the other stuff is me in conversation with people. People who I feel intimate with, people who trust, people who I trust, people who I like, people who like me on a personal level, and talking to them, not only in an interview, but often I'll be sitting around with a character and her mother and I'll just be talking to them. And that will spark the conversation between them, which will ultimately become a scene. So yeah, there's definitely a fluency, a similarity throughout.
