Director Lawrence Kasdan talks to Tavis Smiley about filmmaking:
“When you go on the set, you are surrounded by – and this is the real thing, this is the bottom line – the crew, the cast.These are people that have spent their entire life getting to be very good at that one particular thing they do, whether it’s the acting or the makeup or the camera. It’s like playing on an all-star team. It doesn’t matter what the budget is on your movie.You come in there, truck’s there, the people that got up at 5:00 in the morning, and they are gonna race all day long to get your work done and they’re gonna do it as a team. There is nothing more invigorating or thrilling than that.”
PBS also has a helpful transcript of the video.
Kasdan’s new movie, Darling Companion, comes out this month. I’ll have more to say — nervously — on the topic very soon.
