Approaching the Tyrannosaur Paddock
Nick. 26. Los Angeles.

Let's talk about storytelling and adventures and films and television and books and photography and cinematography and music and traveling and how breakfast is the best meal of the day.

I will fight you on that last one.

"I remember when I got to the set in the morning, he called me and said, ‘Antonio, I’m sorry I didn’t send you the script. You know why I didn’t send you the script?’ I said, ‘No.’ He said, ‘Well, there is no script. We are just working as we go. I am creating the movie as I go. I have a central character and I have certain ideas, and I put him in different situations of life. The guy just tries to be a sponge and suck up everything he sees because he’s an artist. So, I’m shooting a lot of things, and I don’t know what I’m gonna edit because I have a movie where, if I put together the whole entire thing, it might be as long as a week. But, I invite you to play. Feel free. You have this monologue. You can start the monologue in the middle, if you want. I’m going to shoot it in different locations, in this party that we have over here. We’re gonna shoot it in the pool, in the hall, in this dancing scene, in the garden. So, you just relax and enjoy acting. If you even have any idea, please just throw it out.’"

" It’s a very special kind of skill; if you’re too loyal to the photo, it swallows you up. If, for instance, in the middle of a whole page of “personal” drawings, there is suddenly a drawing that is too… It’s as if there’s a sudden hole in the page. You have to take the elements from the photo that you need, and retranscribe them through your personal computer, in order to get a personal vision. The same rule applies to drawing from nature. It’s very difficult, but it’s what enables the artist to bring his vision to a work. Otherwise he’s nothing but a parrot, or an ape. [pp. 86-87]

—Jean Giraud (Moebius)

"DISLIKE IT ALL YOU WANT, BUT BEING NAKEDLY EMOTIONAL IS NOT MANIPULATIVE, IT’S JUST HUMAN. AND TO REJECT SUCH PURPOSEFUL CINEMATIC CONSTRUCTION IS TO REJECT A SMALL PART OF CINEMA ITSELF. IT IS TO REJECT THE "LEVELS" WITHIN OURSELVES. IT IS TO REJECT THE IDEA THAT SPIELBERG IS SIMPLY A PURE FILMMAKER; ONE WHO IS ALL BRAINS, HEARTS AND FARTS IN EQUAL MEASURE."
