"We'd take the process you see in the film [Women Talking] and use it. During prep, we'd literally be throwing stuff up on the board and saying, 'Let's have this hard conversation.' There was a moment when we had to cut the budget. We called it 'the week of pain.' And everyone had to bring up every idea they could possibly think of and they weren't allowed to think about anyone's feelings. And then we just debated each and every idea. We put a number beside each item. And we cut a million dollars in two days. And it was really OK. Nobody walked away, saying, 'I can't believe we had to lose this thing.'"
-- Sarah Polley
