"I've worked on numerous productions since Labyrinth, on film sets in London, L.A., Berlin, Prague, and other places. Not all of those films have been great, mind you, but I try to choose projects that will open people's horizons. That said, some of the things I've worked on achieve this more than others! For example I worked on the first Batman movie, Judge Dredd, and Lost in Space, and if I'm honest, it was merely for the commerce. But that said, Tim Burton's Batman, which I was on board for from the early stages, originally set out to ask some interesting questions. Why would a man don a rubber suit and go around punching people? Why was he created? Why was the Joker created? Why did they choose separate paths from the same anomaly? I was very attracted to Burton's concepts — but then the producers decided to turn the film into a big punch-up. When I saw the final film, it didn't seem to be what we had shot. And yet it was commercially successful."
