Film Producers Quotes By Ken Baumann

The Runaway Five's obvious influence is The Blues Brothers. During localization, their black and white suits were made more colorful to avoid legal action from Universal Pictures or the film's producers. When I told my wife Aviva about this, she admitted she had never seen The Blues Brothers film. Having grown up on a steady diet of Saturday Night Live-spawned movies, I told her that her innocence here was blasphemous. That night, we marveled together at James Brown's hair. — Ken Baumann

Film Producers Quotes By Steve Truglia

Film Producers Quotes By Neil DeGrasse Tyson

Whatever I am, I'm not as bad as the person that read the novel before watching the film. I'll enjoy whatever they [producers] are putting in front of me.

If they made no attempt to get things right, and yet they stumble on something that's right, I'll comment on what they got right. — Neil DeGrasse Tyson

Story Climax is the fourth of the five-part structure. This crowning Major Reversal is not necessarily full of noise and violence. Rather, it must be full of meaning.

Not money; not sex; not special effects; not movie stars; not lush photography. — Robert McKee

Film Producers Quotes By Gael Garcia Bernal

Film Producers Quotes By Joseph E. Johnston

The struggle of making a film for any studio is the fact that the producers and the studio have an idea of what the movie should be, but that is especially the case when the director is being replaced three weeks before principal photography.

How often do we use other people as screens upon which to project our obsessions? Our discontents, dreams, desires, and fears?

One with as many screenwriters, producers, and directors as there are actors — Bradford Morrow

Film Producers Quotes By Tananarive Due

I tell my students based on my experiences in Hollywood, sure, you can always move to L.A. and try to work with the system, and people do that, but chances are if you want your story in film with characters of color, you will have to make that movie yourself. Find a way to make it yourself. Not just screenwriters, but also producers. — Tananarive Due

Film Producers Quotes By Victor Koo

At the Hong Kong festival, we were co-producers of the opening film, 'Aberdeen,' which is the third part in a popular movie series. — Victor Koo

Film Producers Quotes By Tena Desae

The two Hindi movies that I did were not marketed well, and so not many people came to watch the film, hence the audience doesn't know much about me. I am a newcomer, and I cannot sell a film on my own. There has to be a backing in terms of producers. — Tena Desae

Film Producers Quotes By Martin Villeneuve

Film Producers Quotes By A.R. Rahman

I want young Indian composers to be able to do more than just film music.

Film Producers Quotes By Lynne Ramsay

Well, the film industry is completely sexist and completely class-biased. It's not something I get on the ground level, it's more from financiers and producers and distributors. It's a way of dealing with you that is essentially patronising: I know better than you — Lynne Ramsay

Film Producers Quotes By Rohit Shetty

Jokes apart, people are constantly asking me, 'What are you doing for the industry?' When one makes a blockbuster, you plough back money into the industry.

Film Producers Quotes By Roger Corman

Other writers, producers, and directors of low-budget films would often put down the film they were making, saying it was just something to make money with. I never felt that. If I took the assignment, I'd give it my best shot. — Roger Corman

Film Producers Quotes By Richard Donner

Superman was never previewed because the producers didn't trust Warners with the film. — Richard Donner

Film Producers Quotes By Melissa Silverstein

Film Producers Quotes By Chris Albrecht

The scripts for Marco Polo are absolutely, positively fantastic. The challenge of making that show in China has proved to be as formidable as we feared. It's not like making a movie in China where, once you load up and you leave, you're gone. We have to be able to come back and capture something that's going to feel like a major feature film, on a television budget, and do it, hopefully season after season, so we are taking more time than the producers thought. — Chris Albrecht

Film Producers Quotes By Shaan

Composers and lyricists are not responsible for storyline and casting. One can imagine actors shouldering this responsibility, since they charge for half the film. But producers never ask actors to share the losses. Instead, they train their guns on composers and lyricists. — Shaan

Film Producers Quotes By Rick McCallum

The average film has eight or ten producers on it. That is just in a world that would be unthinkable to me, because to me, to really be a producer of a film, you have to be a line producer. — Rick McCallum

Film Producers Quotes By Michael Rapaport

I don't think the subject of a documentary film should be producers on it. — Michael Rapaport

Film Producers Quotes By E.L. Doctorow

Film Producers Quotes By George R R Martin

I had written three books [Games of Throne], at that point, and each one of them was better than the other. At a certain point, as the books were doing well, I started getting interest from Hollywood, from various producers and studios who were initially interested in doing a feature film. I met with some of those people and I had phone conversations with some of those people, but I didn't see it being done as a feature film. — George R R Martin

Film Producers Quotes By Daniel Franklin

Finally, gatekeepers still matter. Technology makes it easier for people to listen to any kind of music they like, but digital availability and ubiquity are steering them increasingly to the biggest hits, not the niches. Bloggers and podcasters and tweeters have shaken up purveyors of news, but not replaced them. Book publishers, art dealers and film producers will still play the biggest role in what gets bought, read, contemplated and listened to. — Daniel Franklin

Film Producers Quotes By George Bernard Shaw

All industries are brought under the control of such people [film producers] by Capitalism. If the capitalists let themselves be seduced from their pursuit of profits to the enchantments of art, they would be bankrupt before they knew where they were. You cannot combine the pursuit of money with the pursuit of art. — George Bernard Shaw

Film Producers Quotes By Emraan Hashmi

I have kissed in almost all the films except in 'Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai.' I'm not sure if my kissing on screen has anything to do with the success of a film, but producers make sure to put a kissing scene or two. They feel my kissing scenes are my lucky streak. — Emraan Hashmi

Film Producers Quotes By Marc Guggenheim

I think when it comes to television as opposed to film, the producers really are the writers. We work with people who are purely financial producers. — Marc Guggenheim

Film Producers Quotes By Bahman Ghobadi

When you want to make a film abroad, you need producers and people who support you. You need a team that speaks your language. — Bahman Ghobadi

Film Producers Quotes By John Griesemer

Writing a screen play: One page of an average screen play equals about one minute of screen time. Therefore, the script for a typical feature film should be about 100 pages long. In fact, many studios and producers won't look at screen plays that are much longer. — John Griesemer

Film Producers Quotes By Steven Spielberg

I think producers are more interested in backing concepts than directors and writers. I don't think that's the right way of making a decision about whether you're going to back a film or not. — Steven Spielberg

Film Producers Quotes By Henry Jackman

To spend any time with someone who is among the top five film composers of the last 50 years is pure gold dust. I mean, not necessarily stylistically, because everyone is different in what their music sounds like, but the approach and how to look at a film, how to think about a film, how to decide what you want to do, how to think about characters, how to think about art, how to think about narrative, how to liaise with producers, how to liaise with directors. — Henry Jackman

Film Producers Quotes By Chiara Barzini

Screenwriting involves an often un-personal process. Co-writers, directors, producers, everyone has a say in what you put on a page, and stories are constantly changing according to budget, actors, and commercial needs. Films are a collaborative process and are also inherently narrative and structured, so you are always working within very tight parameters. Short fiction unleashes a more intimate voice and a passion for language. I believe short narratives can have the same amount of danger and drama as any action film. — Chiara Barzini

Film Producers Quotes By Mark Travis

You are really a manipulator. There's no better word, and you're twisting and manipulating people to get the totality, which exists only in your mind. What I've said to producers, what I've said to lots of people is, "Don't worry about that. I've seen the movie. I'm the only one who has seen the movie, and I know what the movie is, and that's what I'm getting on film. I'm getting as close as I can to the movie I've already seen. — Mark Travis

Film Producers Quotes By Joseph Fiennes

So getting that balance between what is honoring scripture and the Word and also acknowledging the fact that by the virtue of putting it on film there's going to be a variation and adaptation, I mean, it's a fine dance and a balance. Our producers and directors have worked so hard to get that right and I'm really proud. I think it's a pretty good job. — Joseph Fiennes

Film Producers Quotes By Robert McKee

Many producers state without blinking that the audience wants a happy ending. They say this because up-ending films tend to make more money than down-ending films. The reason for this is that a small percentage of the audience won't go to any film that might give it an unpleasant experience. Generally their excuse is that they have enough tragedy in their lives. But if we were to look closely, we'd discover that they not only avoid negative emotions in movies, they avoid them in life. Such people think that happiness means never suffering, so they never feel anything deeply. The depth of our joy is in direct proportion to what we've suffered. Holocaust survivors, for example, don't avoid dark films. They go because such stories resonate with their past and are deeply cathartic. — Robert McKee
