What would your Project Imagination Trailer be if you created one? 
I think it would either be something centered around my dog because he's my rock -- he doesn't talk very much, but you know, we could figure that part out -- or it has to be something on one of the "Hunger Games" press tours because those things are insane and have a billion stories in there. One of those. 
What's it been like working with Ron Howard? 
I got to sit down with Ron a couple of weeks ago and kind of went over the whole idea and got to know each other and talk about his process and making movies, which is so cool because just to get to talk to Ron Howard about that is a very lucky position to be in. Ron's great and obviously he's worked with Canon now for quite some time and they built up a great relationship and they really know how to do this thing. It's great, it's really cool to be a part of it. 
You're presenting at the Oscars this year! Are you nervous and excited? 
I am exactly that, nervous and excited! It's incredible, I can't really believe it. It's kind of a shocking thing, but it's an honor to be there. 
Do you have any picks for winners or any favorites? 
Yeah, I love "Birdman" and "Whiplash," they're my two favorite movies of the year. This year, the nominees for Best Picture could all totally win -- the movies are just so good! So, I don't know what's going to happen, but yeah, "Birdman" and "Whiplash"? I flipped out.

And you worked with Julianne Moore, who's a Best Actress nominee. 
Oh, yeah, she's incredible. I love her and she should definitely win. She's done so many roles over the years that could have won in everything, so I think now is a perfect moment for her. 
You're done shooting "Mockingjay - Part 2" correct? 
Yes, we're done shooting. 
So how does that make you feel? Are you ready for it to come to an end or is it kind of bittersweet? 
Definitely bittersweet. I'd say more bitter than sweet at the moment just because I miss it. It was a really great experience and we got to make something really cool and interesting and along the way met great people and had a great time making it, so sad to see it come to an end. But it's also exciting because I'm moving on to other things and this Canon project is something I've been focused on a lot.
