My sense of responsibility to the audience is to screen things that they would never see in a local theater.
I can't read a computer screen and never use a calculator. It's all in my head and by hand.
I don't want to be embarrassed when I go to see something on the screen. I don't want to listen to foul language, watch a lot of violence or see something immoral. I prefer stories with sensitivity and family values; films that strive to lift you up to a higher place in life.
I try to let go of the intellect and just tell the story. I only read the page I have in front of me on the screen. Then when the whole story is told, I print it, wait a week and read it.
My show is my statement. What I have to say is on the screen. My life is my own. I don't want to talk about my private self. Why should I?
Oftentimes, when we think of 3D, we think of things coming out of the screen, but actually, you've got this zero, this negative space, what they call the negative space, which is the scene, what's being filmed in the positive space of the audience. As you can have things come out, you can have all of this depth.
In professional wrestling, I think that they want you to be bigger than life. It's almost like an over-acting type thing - whereas on the big screen, you're 35 feet and they've got a close-up of you to put it on the screen in the movie house. At 35 feet, it's more subtlety than the overboard drama that we do in pro wrestling.

I knew exactly how I wanted it to play, but you are never sure until you watch the projected images reflect off the screen. That's when you know it worked.
The cinema has done more for my spiritual life than the church. My ideas of fame, success and beauty all originate from the big screen. Whereas Christian religion is retreating everywhere and losing more and more influence; film has filled the vacuum and supports us with myths and action-controlling images.
On TV people look at your hair and then they look at your skin, and then they look at your clothes, and by the time they're listening to what you're saying, you're off the screen.
One sign of a great actor is when he can be alone by himself on the screen, doing almost nothing, and producing one of a film's defining moments.
I've played farce on the stage, but I have never played any sort of comedy on the screen.
Some things we forget. But many things we remember on the mental screen, which is the biggest screen of all.
The cinema is really built for the big screen and big sound, so that a person can go into another world and have an experience.
I've always loved reprehensible people because they're so much more interesting to play on screen.
I admired Marlon Brando as I grew up. I though he was one of the finest screen actors around.
I am not an actress. I can only play me - on and off the screen.
My love of computers, besides being practical, is very direct and visceral. I love the way things look on the screen.
The world starts to exist, for Americans, when we are in conflict with a place. And then all of a sudden, Afghanistan pops up on the TV screen and it becomes a place. And it exists for three weeks, and then it disappears into thin air.

Growing old on screen is not for the faint of heart.
The Internet community started forming right when 'Buffy' started airing, and the notion of a show creator being anything other than a name people recognize on the screen was completely new.
