The gambit paid off on this occasion, but Viney’s main goal is to nurture his compact directing roster in an ethical fashion: “Some companies sign every director who’s made any kind of noise and bang them on the roster. You’re hoping that someone is going to take off and that’s where you’re going to put your energy. But I don’t think that’s the nicest thing to do."
Instead, Pundersons Gardens "run a much smaller, tighter ship and prefer to develop people over time. People get more face time with the producer and it sort of binds them in the same struggle."

It establishes tighter bonds with directors on a personal as well as professional level. According to Viney, “There is nothing nicer than seeing one of your directors approved for a mortgage and make a living like a proper, well-paid adult."
The company themselves are in good nick too, with fifty-percent growth year on year and a sound reputation. As demand from both new and regular clients grows, Viney insists the main goal is always the same: “to make a film that we all agree is really, really, really, really good.”
“I think that’s why we all started this,” Viney concludes. “It was the idea that one day you might be able to make something that was close to genius… and we’re going to. That’s the rolling resolution: to make something that is as close to a masterpiece as possible.”
