|Pillsbury on deciding which projects she and partner Midge Sanford take on: "The idea is not as important as the characters. So if the writing isn't good enough to make those characters into people we fall in love with, then we aren't likely to get involved with the project. We like to see the main character go through some kind of an arc, to go through some kind of psychological, moral, political episode that takes him to a different place." --quoted in American Film, October 1989.|
|Pillsbury on the dynamic between director and producer: "Neither of us wants to direct at all. I think if we wanted to direct, our feelings might be different. I fell that I really don't want to do the director's job, and I think that we'll get to work with better directors if we maintain that principle." --quoted in American Film, October 1989.|
