David made me finally realize my ideas and process are me. Learning to embrace and stay true to yourself is everything! Im going down a better road.

It was fun to hear the backstory of an artist.

For me all the artistic experiences (painting, acting, architecture...) are the same in creativity, following the ideas and giving reality to them.

it was great new ways to think about directing, production design and improv

My mind is absolutley blown away. "I would talk to Angelo with … words, and Angelo wold play my words, if I dind't like, I changhed my words".

How do you find talented people like Angelo or Alf? Especially when you are struggling with your budget . How do you motivate them?

He is incredible! I could listen to him endlessly. Thank you for this great masterclass, David! As it always happens when it comes to good things, it's never enough...

Would have loved to hear more about choosing artists and music for Club Bang-Bang, especially the past season of Twin Peaks when there seemed a particular intent to each episode (he directed each one). The NIN set was thrilling!

Twin Peaks is the best cinematic score in history of TV! Thank you David! You can close your eyes and be in a sensual, mysterious and fun unexpected Northern place that is the Twin Peaks universe.
