I used to collect Japanese art, but I loyally collect old classic books—rare or masterful works. I have always been an avid reader. I don’t have book shelves so there are stacks and piles of books like a maze around my house. I think the best writers are the best readers, so the stacks have to stay. I am now a member of SAG in US and my plan is to start collecting income next! I’ve learnt so much from indie sets and with the freedom to pick scripts I am most passionate and proud about—the story of writer and sculptor Baroness Elsa Von Freytag Loringhoven is a great example, and this screened at The Whitney Museum—but the journey is hazardous. Artists need to paid and properly. You want to know the journey will come to fruition, that you will see the end product of your hard work on screen distributed without further budget issues, and, perhaps, one day, you will buy some book shelves and a big oak library for the book collection too.
