"[Before the 1950s] I did everything; I did sound mixing, photography, etc. because there was only two of us [F.R. Crawley and Judith Crawley]. I even went out as a freelance camerawoman for the NFB, but that was when I only had one or two children. Then I slipped into writing. I was writing more and not directing because with the directing you have to be out for eight or ten hours at a time. Whereas, with writing you can do it at night when the children are asleep."
-- Judith Crawley
