For me, a short is not a stepping stone to a feature. It’s what it is, a beginning, a middle and an end. Like a play is a play, a novel is a novel and a short story is a short story. Filmmakers can do both. That doesn’t mean that one leads to another. One is different from another and all of my career, I will be doing both.
