Joss Whedon is still God, we just haven’t seen His works in a while. He talks about lunch with Eliza, how He has to write now because “oh, wait, all of my writers have jobs,” the internet musical, and family life.
Directing is my way of creating the style, of relating to the actors and dialing in what their characters are. For me to be doing that as an executive producer over another director’s shoulder isn’t fair to them. And I happen to be one of my favorite directors. I’m not the best, but I’m just easy to get along with. I agree with almost everything I say. I won’t do it the whole season. I have to be home and I have to get the scripts out on time. It’s going to be a new skill that I’m learning.
