Too many people spend too much time trying to perfect something before they actually do it. Instead of waiting for perfection, run with what you’ve got, and fix it along the way.

I want to risk hitting my head on the ceiling of my talent. I want to really test it out and say, “Okay, you’re not that good. You just reached the level here.” I don’t ever want to fail, but I want to risk failure every time out of the gate.

So many of us have gone out and bought the latest camera or lens before we even know what type of work we are actually going to do with it. By letting your project dictate what you buy, you will find that you truly make better choices and investments as you are purchasing tools that have a purpose. There is no right or wrong camera. No single camera perfect for every job, so why even consider buying something before you know what you’re going to do with it?

The images alone are insufficient. They are very important, but they are only images. The essential thing is how long each image lasts, what follows each image. All of the eloquence of film is created in the editing room.

It would be unthinkable for a writer to tell a director how to direct or a producer how to produce or an actor how to act or a cinematographer how to light a scene. But it is not at all unthinkable for anyone to tell a writer how to write. It comes with the territory.
