“We're not a traditional production company. It wasn't, ‘Here's a commission to make an hour of TV the same as you've seen 20 times before, but different’. This was a whole different way of consuming content. Our brains were operating as TV producers, but also entrepreneurs; what were the revenue streams etc. That provided us with a really good introduction into the industry.”

“The worst thing you can do is stand and watch, the best thing you can do is get involved in anything. But once you're involved, then you'll find it leads you to where you need to be, or it leads you to where you're going to do your best work.”

“You need to learn from your mistakes, have the humility to really learn from your mistakes. That will not only allow you to get better, it will also allow you to find the path you need to be on.”
