“Well, when you’re trying to create things that are new, you have to be prepared to be on the edge of risk.” — Michael Eisner
In 1991, Francis Ford Coppola said:
“To me the great hope is that now these little video recorders are around and people who normally wouldn’t make movies are going to be making them. And suddenly, one day some little fat girl in Ohio is going to be the new Mozart and make a beautiful film with her father’s camcorder and for once, the so-called professionalism about movies will be destroyed, forever, and it will really become an art form.”
This quote should make any self-respecting film buff smile.
