Scene from MORE THAN PENGUINS
Which actor or actress would you love to work with and why?
ES: I have no idea, because I usually look for an actor or actress for one specific role and if I find one, that matches the screenplay, I'm happy.
MR: Bruno Ganz - excellent reputation and if there is no suitable feature film project in the making, he is still good to use as an off-speaker in a documentary film.
If your film was an animal, what animal would it be?
What would you be if you weren’t a filmmaker?
ES: I would like to be a writer. I need to tell stories.
