Interview by Andrea Blanch
AB: How does the filmmaking process for Don't Blink differ from your directorial debut Windfall? How did your experiences with Windfall strengthen and prepare you for Don't Blink?
LI: Well, the main thing is I learned to work with other people. I always keep a small crew, but it helps to create a dialogue with the people working on the film. Going through that before with Windfall really helped. Even this part of the process, like going to film festivals, it really helped me. Yesterday, when I had to stand and speak in front of 1,000 people; I had already done it a hundred times before with Windfall. And with Windfall, it was more challenging because a lot of the audience was quite passionately angry at me. So, I was often defending myself. That experience really helped me to get really tough skin.
