I do not always know what I want, but I do know what I don’t want.
Nowadays films and television are what I like to call “Microwave Media”. I like mine in the oven, giving the production time to simmer; get the juices flowing, and cooked to perfection. And that takes time. Slow, precious, tempered time. A script is a film’s recipe. It’s just a piece of paper to the novice...
I love Malcolm Lee and jumped on the opportunity to work with him as a director.
The time to act is now! Somebody go get the Director.
The director is the only person who knows what the film is about.
I started my career as an actor, but I’ve been a director for 15 years now.
I really feel that I’m a much better director than I was an actor.
I don’t think it’s a director’s job to peek behind the curtain too much.
I think film, to me, as a director, is about telling a story.
As an action director, I always try to bring something fresh and new.
When you’re the director, you kinda do all the work.
A director must be a policeman, a midwife, a psychoanalyst, a sycophant and a bastard.
With ‘Eagle of the Ninth,’ every shot was extremely planned and organized. The director was like, ‘Do this!’ And I say, ‘How was it?’ and he says, ‘Good.’ It was very odd. I would never know where he was headed, or even if he was shooting me at a close-up or from a distance.
The record producer is the music world’s equivalent of a film director.
My husband’s a director, so he understands what I do.
A director just pushes them a little this way or that way.
