My goal was to work on fewer films each year, which I have achieved.
However, I noticed something interesting when I tried to reduce my workload.
Now that I work on fewer films, I get more calls from people who want to work with me.
While I am grateful for these opportunities, I did not want to do these films now.
I have my reasons for it.

I'll let the Streisand effect strike.
