on filming

Any film is in danger of being not interesting. And, as a fact, most of them are!
On the other hand, the term "interesting" is totally meaningless, because what is interesting to John is not interesting to Peter. And Sergei finds both, Peter and John tastes boring, he is interested in something else. So for whom should I make my films, for Peter, Paul or Sergei?
Not having any answer to that, I make them for myself and my friends. I never think about the audience (Paul, Peter, Sergei, Magda, etc etc).
