quotes

  • ❝ a film is never really good unless the camera is an eye in the head of a poet. ❞ — orson welles on filmmaking
  • ❝ pick up a camera. shoot something. no matter how small, no matter how cheesy, no matter whether your friends and your sister star in it. put your name on it as director. now you're a director. everything after that you're just negotiating your budget and your fee. ❞
    • james cameron, advice for aspiring filmmakers
  • ❝ the desire to pray itself is a type of prayer. how often we ask for genuine experience when all we really want is emotion. my hand shakes as i write these lines. ❞
    • paul schrader, from the screenplay first reformed
  • ❝ you don't have to know how to make a movie. you don't have to go to school, you don't have to know lenses, fuck all that shit, crossing the line, none of that shit's important. if you truly love cinema with all your heart, and with enough passion, you can't help but make a good movie. ❞
