Most of the guys I work with do not want to make the lifestyle of filmmaking, because the lifestyle is very different. It’s very expensive and there’s not much in it for them. It’s very demanding. A lot of film school guys want to do that lifestyle and I get on there and I find out that they’re not all into it, and that makes me very sad sometimes (laughs).

Is it a burden to make videos at your current job?
Every day is a burden. You feel like you live in a perpetual state of stress and you’re not getting anywhere. We work on all aspects. I have to teach myself new things constantly.

“As a result, demand is high and supply is low,” it said.
“It is not entirely surprising, then, that property prices have been largely flat or falling.”
The government commissioned the report and commissioned it to be made public on Wednesday.
The report found the rate
