Quotes

#Quote
1The 2010 Produced By Conference in Los Angeles, California: At the every least, the conference should help give producers an attitude adjustment. 'It's how does one turn lemons into lemonade.' Take the renewed focus on sequels and remakes. 'It's frankly a little depressing for everyone because most people have a passion for storytelling and don't want to rehash the same thing over and over again.' That's the reality of the business right now.' You can either say 'This is not interesting for me' and go play somewhere else. Or you can figure out a way to deliver what studios want while developing passion projects independently.
2Sometimes I feel like I'm not working hard enough. There are always going to be people making a bigger movie, making what seems like a better deal. But you can't spend your life thinking about it. Or I guess you can, and some people do, but I am trying to not be one of them.
3Up until about 10 years ago, I was very caught up in outcome. I wanted to be a member of the Big Hit Club, and then I wanted to stay a member of the Big Hit Club. So instead of enjoying, or even noticing the process, I was always racing ahead to see what would happen next.
4And the older I get, the less the idea of failure has any meaning. Just because something doesn't work, doesn't mean you've failed.
5Most people think, 'Oh, the producer's the guy who gets the money.' And that's part of it. But the producer also develops the script, brings in the director, works as an editor, is involved in the marketing. It's really hard to define.
6People appreciate directness and honesty. The best bullshit is truth because it's totally disarming.
