"I was a couple of films in before I realized, ‘Oh gosh, this must be who I am. I guess I’ll never be that other thing.’ It’s kind of a sad day. Before you’ve done anything, the world is completely open, just like any actor starting out saying, ‘Oh, I want to be Meryl Streep or Robert De Niro.’ At some point you look in the mirror and go, ‘Shit, okay, here’s who I am. I’m not that, but I am this.’ You sense your limitations and learn to live with it."

The worst thing about this new season of the not so good show, American Horror Story, is that they treat body modification & deformity as a horror.

Production DesignAkira (1988)

As I originally developed [Akira], I used each issue to build more depth and size into this mammoth city [Neo-Tokyo]. I kept trying to achieve this by creating a variety of situations to stage the graphic storytelling. But with film you get to combine all this into one and I think that it is much more convincing on film than in a serialized comic strip. - director Katsuhiro Otomo; P.D. by Hiroshi Ohno, Yuji Ikehata and Kazuo Ebisawa

So I spent my first week of school pissed because of not being able to write my own script for my Prod. 3 film and someone was going to who has completely different taste than. But, I ended up writing my own script, gave my group the 1st draft, and that’s the script we’re to produce. Yay!


Also, I’ll have my film shot in 4:3 aspect ration. Stoked on that

avenging-hobbits asked: "advice on a good Ingar Bergman film for a first time viewer?"

That’s a hard one because I haven’t watched his whole filmography yet, but I started with Through a Glass Darkly, but my favorite is Persona. Choose between those two.

"What I do is think about time in a very simple way. Filmmakers are never interested in time, which disturbs me because time is terribly important — it’s a dimension. Our life happens over time, and time is always short, and getting shorter and shorter. That’s why I want to show you in my films that time is passing and when something is happening it’s happening in time. I want to show the viewer that time is as important as the set, as the music, as the actors and the action." — Béla Tarr
