What I learned from these four filmmakers
(my words, not theirs)


Gordie Willis: Never be afraid to try what has never been tried before, and always
push to keep the integrity of the cinematography intact.

Paolo Pasolini: Film is an even more powerful means of swaying people's
ideas and prejudices, than even wars.

Berno Bertolucci: There are no big or little films, only films you love or films you don't.

Connie Hall: Keep it simple, and everything else will just fall into place.


And that's as good as it gets...
