under the influence

"I must emphasize, all of these influences come in hindsight. As I’ve gained experience, I really try not to be too conscious of my influences because I don’t want them to stifle whatever thread I’m trying to explore. I need to be open to everything and the more you’re influenced by any one source (a film, a how to guide, a personality), the more closed off your world becomes, the more you become a missionary for someone else’s ideas" 

- screenwriter Seth Lochhead
