[on the film Underworld (2003)] It was quite shocking, the DVD sales had matched the box-office sales, and it definitely has been something that has grown.

Die Hard (1988), Indiana Jones and Lethal Weapon (1987) were the movies that really kicked it off for me in high school. I saw a making-of Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981) documentary and thought, “Man, that’s the job I want to do”.

I’d been jumping on movies as the prop guy or drawing storyboards before I joined the art department on Stargate, Independence Day and Godzilla. When I was pitching the script for Underworld, I did 12 detailed production drawings, which the producers later told me made them feel more comfortable about going with a first- time director.
