About 12 years ago, we were shooting in Acapulco and our producer came up against opposition from some local business owners on the beach we were using as a set. The problem was confined to certain areas of the beach and thanks to some skillful negotiations and careful planning we were able to carry on shooting. I’d been in situations like this before, but I especially remember this one because it suddenly dawned on me that I have a true passion for this job and that doing it to the best of my ability brings me enormous satisfaction.
