The Filmmaker Says

Francis Ford Coppola once said, “If you don’t take a risk then how are you going to make something really beautiful, that hasn’t been seen before?”

The art of film making is like any other craft. You need to have passion and you need to take risks to make that passion a reality. And to keep at it, you have to be inspired. Where do you get your inspirations from? You get them from quotes, quips and words of wisdom from people who have trekked through that exact same path — famous Hollywood directors, filmmakers and other creatives.

the_film-maker_saysIn the book The Filmmaker Says published by Princeton Architectural Press you’ll find just that. This collection gives you insight into the conversations that filmmakers have had and in the process of reading, perhaps you may be inspired to formulate your own views on what matters — about the movies or about creativity in general.

No doubt this is a book that you will go to when you need a creative nudge or a pick-me-up. And in doing so, you just may get closer to making your dream a reality.

without risk
is like having
no sex and
to have a baby.
You have to
take a risk.

~ Francis Ford Coppola
