As filmmakers, we want the audience to have the most complete experience they can. For example, I interviewed Stanley Kubrick years ago around the time of '2001: A Space Odyssey.' I was going to see the film that night in London, and he insisted I sit in one of four seats in the theater for the best view or not watch the film.
Filmmakers and artists always thrive during more liberal times.
Working with HBO was an opportunity to experience creative freedom and 'long-form development' that filmmakers didn't have a chance to do before the emergence of shows like 'The Sopranos.'
As filmmakers, we're constantly always looking for something to bring the audience deeper into the reality of the story we're telling.
Why has Scandinavia been producing such good thrillers? Maybe because their filmmakers can't afford millions for CGI and must rely on cheaper elements like, you know, stories and characters.
Most filmmakers can't afford to try something out that doesn't work.
Francis Ford Coppola
I think the thing about film is, as it gets proved by a lot of young filmmakers now, that the medium will just go on reinventing itself, and so you just hope to be a part of that and not a part of some kind of endless regurgitation or 'Here I am doing what you know I do' kind of thing.
You know, when I first started making online videos, there were a lot of filmmakers I befriended who were doing it too.
One of the most interesting aspects of the film project was collaborating with so many people - directors, filmmakers, and writers - over a five-year period. I learned that there are two components to this.
I think it's a mistake for young filmmakers to just buy digital equipment and shoot a feature. Make short films first, make your mistakes and learn from them.
Movies are not novels, and that's why, when filmmakers try to adapt novels, particularly long or complex novels, the result is almost always failure. It can't be done.
If the goal is to get the best artists, actors, and filmmakers in the world to create the best movies, Hollywood does a decent job. And I think no one would disagree with me that it also makes a ton of bad movies and employs a bunch of hacks.
I always tell younger filmmakers, it's not just about the acting or the art itself. It's about how big of an audience watches your film.
The reason most comedies don't win awards is that the filmmakers put the comedy first. This means you have to create a story around the jokes.
I want to work with great filmmakers and great actors and get better as an actor.
Our responsibility as filmmakers is to make things that are fresh, unique and original.
It's not my style to either wear minimum clothes, to strip, or to even be comfortable with a sex-symbol label. I just want to do good work instead of sporting such meaningless tags. Sex sells, but to a small extent, not always. And this is what filmmakers have to accept.
Stories in which the destruction of society occurs are explorations of social fears and issues that filmmakers, novelists, playwrights, painters have been examining for a long time.
J. J. Abrams
If there's anything that I've always said about myself is that to me, it's much more important for me to get to work with filmmakers that I've grown up loving and admiring.
Other filmmakers make their movies and put them out and that's that. For me, for some odd reason, it goes deeper than that.
I don't find myself lobbying for projects. Filmmakers almost always come to me.
I don't think people have been able to deal with the fact that African American filmmakers can make movies about life and relationships.
If you look at anybody who's had along career, if you look at the choices they've made - even if the movies haven't worked - they've always worked with great filmmakers.
Oh, filmmakers, please don't take my soft book and turn it into a horror, or take my horror and make it soft.
I am admiring of my fellow peers, black filmmakers and black actors and actresses.
Cuba Gooding, Jr.
John F. Kennedy
