Terms Of Service
Quotes by Directors
Technology can be our best friend, and technology can also be the biggest party pooper of our lives.

Life isn't black and white. It's a million gray areas, don't you find?
Black And White
Pick up a camera. Shoot something. No matter how small, no matter how cheesy, no matter whether your friends and your sister star in it. Put your name on it as director. Now you're a director. Everything after that you're just negotiating your budget and your fee.
I didn't get into film to win Academy Awards. I wanted to have a conversation with the audience.
The essence of cinema is editing. It's the combination of what can be extraordinary images of people during emotional moments, or images in a general sense, put together in a kind of alchemy.
Francis Ford Coppola
Nature's beauty is a gift that cultivates appreciation and gratitude.
There is beauty and humility in imperfection.
Guillermo del Toro
Age is something that doesn't matter, unless you are a cheese.

Sometimes, we have to turn our camera to a mirror to shoot something, and people think, 'Oh, that's very stylish.' Yes it is, but at the same time, we did it because we are shooting in a very small space, and that was our only option.
