"Nothing is original. Steal from anywhere that resonates with inspiration or fuels your imagination. Devour old films, new films, music, books, paintings, photographs, poems, dreams, random conversations. Architecture, bridges, street signs, trees, clouds, bodies of water, light and shadows. Select only things to steal from that speak directly to your soul. If you do this, your work (and theft) will be authentic. Authenticity is invaluable. Originality is non-existent. And don’t bother concealing your thievery — celebrate it if you feel like it. In any case, always remember what Jean-Luc Godard said, ‘It’s not where you take things from. It’s where you take them to.’"

The content of this post alone is better than any film school. Everything starts from there: “An awareness of film history leads to a richer understanding of your art and further matures how you envision your film and how you approach the technical and artistic elements of filmmaking while staying true to your filmmaker’s style. Stanley Kubrick reinvents a visual sequence from Victor Sjöström’s ‘The Phantom Carriage’ (1921) for ‘The Shining’ (1980). He substitutes the croquet mallet in Stephen King’s novel to an axe and draws upon the film’s simple but emotionally effective editing and cinematography. Sometimes pieces of great films echo in others, and though there may be many reasons for it, certainly one must be in order to share in the timeless experiences that cinema offers.

John Logan is one of Hollywood’s most prolific writers, having penned the scripts for films such as ‘Gladiator,’ ‘The Aviator,’ ‘Hugo,’ and ‘Skyfall.’ He is also an excellent source of insight for filmmakers. Courtesy of Casey Moore, Logan shares an essential piece of advice for ‘cinema artists.’ Watch and listen to John Logan speak to emerging artists about how they can change Hollywood, enjoy and compare Victor Sjöström’s ‘The Phantom Carriage’ and Stanley Kubrick’s ‘The Shining.’” Edwin Adrian Nieves


Tell me your favorite shot from ‘Vertigo.’ Tell me your favorite Fred Astaire dance move and why. Tell me your favorite silent movie. Tell me the thing that made you be a cinema artist… Your responsibility is to know where you belong in the continuum of your art, and that means from the beginning of your art… You have to know where you belong because if you can’t with the ease of a Marty Scorsese refer just as easily to Italian Neorealism as you can Quentin Tarantino, you do not deserve to be in the room. John Logan

"I feel myself driven towards an end that I do not know. As soon as I shall have reached it, as soon as I shall become unnecessary, an atom will suffice to shatter me. Til then, not all the forces of mankind can do anything against me."

— Me, before I finish the final twinkie.
