Sometimes a director is making three films. Perhaps he is shooting a film in Madras and a film in Bombay and he can't leave Madras as some shooting has to be done, so he directs by telephone. The shooting takes place. On schedule.
Me shooting 40% at the foul line is just God's way to say nobody's perfect.
Why are people always shooting zombies? Why not just chop their heads off? How can zombies get you if you have a good sword?
If you wait until the right time to have a child you'll die childless, and I think film making is very much the same thing. You just have to take the plunge and just start shooting something even if it's bad.
I've always believed the greater danger is not aiming too high, but too low, settling for a bogey rather than shooting for an eagle.
Serious sport is war minus the shooting.
A critic is someone who never actually goes to the battle, yet who afterwards comes out shooting the wounded.
I don't know how many lions and leopards I've shot. I've shot two elephants, which was enough - never again. It's a melancholy and moving thing to hunt an elephant. It's like shooting an old man.
I grew up in Los Angeles, and I've made movies all over the world... I've been in New York, Norway, Chicago, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, London - I've been in all these cities, shooting away in the winter, thinking, 'People who choose to live here are insane.'
Zombies, what are you going to do with them? Just keep chopping them up, shooting at them, shooting at them.
Some directors expect you to do everything; write, be producer, psychiatrist. Some just want you to die in a tragic accident during the shooting so they can get the insurance.

I'm either shooting nine grams of coke a day or spending two hours at the gym. There's no middle ground.
You never hear about a pit bull doing anything good in the media. And they have a stigma to them... and, in many ways, pit bulls are like young African-American males. Whenever you see us in the news, it's for getting shot and killed or shooting and killing somebody - for being a stereotype.
I get nervous when they start shooting piano players.
The film is made in the editing room. The shooting of the film is about shopping, almost. It's like going to get all the ingredients together, and you've got to make sure before you leave the store that you got all the ingredients. And then you take those ingredients and you can make a good cake - or not.
Philip Seymour Hoffman
I wanted to be the next Dana Carvey. This was my ultimate goal. If I ever cut into a birthday cake and made a wish, I would wish to be on 'Saturday Night Live.'

No nation, savage or civilized, save only the United States of America, has confessed its inability to protect its women save by hanging, shooting, and burning alleged offenders.
Ida B. Wells

We have wasted History like a bunch of drunks shooting dice back in the men's crapper of the local bar.
I'm quite detached from failure and success. Once a shooting is done, I kind of close that chapter in my life.
