For me concept and styling are sacred. Weeks before shooting I run all options and locations through my head and adapt if necessary. This visualisation gives me a great base from were I can rise to the challenge to inspire the actors, be technical right on the money.
When you follow your vision and explain to everybody why they have to feel or act in a certain way and which expression relates to that everything becomes synchronic. Everybody working together in composing an image we all are part of makes me ecstatic and deeply grateful.
