Hannibal Lecter.

You’ve gotta go through some bad ideas to get to the good ones. Tell us one of your bad ideas. How do you get past the bad ones to find your spark?

I almost gave up the idea of making Nose Nose Nose EYES! because I could not raise enough money for the film. It was the first bad idea that I had to go through.
