Scenery is fine - but human nature is finer.
I grew up with classical music when I was a ballet dancer. Now when I have to prepare an emotional scene to cry or whatever I listen to sonatas. Vivaldi and stuff. It's just beautiful to me.
We're real people and we're a band that's been playing on the scene for a long time. We've made a lot of friends and one enemy we've always had was the NME. They've always basically slated us and they've basically never ever written about the music.
Ah reality TV: where opportunists delight in exposing opportunism! It's kind of like the indie music scene.
After all in today's music scene every band seems to steal from other bands.
You can't give up something you really believe in for financial reasons. If you die by the roadside - so be it. But at least you know you've tried. Ten minutes in the music scene was the equal of one hundred years outside of it.
No 'F/X 2' was a job. I enjoyed doing it but that was definitely a job. I wrote that I didn't direct it but 'Candyman' and the earlier horror movies I made I was completely into horror and suspense and always have been. It's informed everything I've done even the way scenes are shot in 'Kinsey and 'Gods and Monsters.'
I use to watch like maybe three or four movies five days out of the week. I was a movie buff but I really didn't know what it was like behind the scenes or the whole political process of it.
I'm a spoilt brat. I thought I was just going to walk in and make movies. But I'd been my own boss for so long that all of a sudden to be facing a roomful of people who were niggling over every little scene... I just thought I'd go back and draw my comics and have a happy life.
Movies have to handle time very efficiently. They're about stringing scenes together in the present. Novels aren't necessarily about that.
I don't even like watching sex scenes in movies. I have a slight prudish side to me.
I appreciate a slow-burn romance. In most movies everyone is just tearing their clothes off in the first scene.
Before I'd written movies I never could do big set-piece scenes with a lot of different speakers - when you've got twelve people around a dinner table talking at cross purposes. I had always been impressed by other people's ability to do that.
I don't get it when you get so much openness about the way movies are made and the special effects and the behind-the-scenes stuff and all of that. I can't help but feel like this reduces it a little bit.
A lot of action movies today seem to have scenes that just lead up to the action.
A lot of the struggle I had with movies is I really loved moments and tones and feelings in a scene and I loved creating those but I never really had great stories to string them together.
Shoot a few scenes out of focus. I want to win the foreign film award.
In Rio Bravo when Duke makes love to Feathers the scene dissolves to the next morning where we see him putting on his vest and almost humming. It was subtle but you knew what happened. Give me a towel and some blankets any day!
It really depends but generally speaking just because of the mechanics of it voice-over is easier because there is no hair no makeup no wardrobe no fittings no line memorizing. You don't have to me woken up in Russia at 6 in the morning and go film a scene. It's just easier on the body the family life to do voice-overs.
This morning's scene is good and fine Long rain has not harmed the land.
London is completely unpredictable when it comes to weather. You'll start a scene and it's a beautiful morning. You get there at 6 in the morning set up you start the scene start shooting. Three hours later it is pitch black and rainy.
The Supreme Court has ruled that they cannot have a nativity scene in Washington D.C. This wasn't for any religious reasons. They couldn't find three wise men and a virgin.
Fort Smith being the place of my longest stay was the scene of my largest medical practice.
I enjoy the element of pushing yourself learning something new whether it's a dance step a scene an emotion.
