Dear Roger,

When reading a screenplay, what is something you are afraid of or really dislike? Is there a certain location or ''thing'' you don't like to shoot. I know some DOPs hate shooting doorways because one side is always very bright and the other dark.

I read a screenplay in the same way I will read a novel. The technical aspects of the story don't concern me until much later. I have to connect with it first.
