Usually, when you do a period movie, you just recreate what you are shooting. You don't recreate the way you shoot it. I think I did the same thing here as I did in the OSS 117 movies. I recreated the way to shoot that period, because to me, like what I was saying about the Steadicam, there's no sense to do a Steadicam shot in the 1920s because you have never seen the '20s like that. You can't believe there was a Steadicam in the 1920s. I believe it's a continuation of the OSS 117 in a way but without the irony.More Michel Hazanavicius quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
First of all, I had the desire for that format [silent movie], and then when I was talking to people, I felt that people needed justification. Why are you doing a silent movie? Is it just for your own pleasure? I felt it was not enough for them so I realized I have to choose the subject that will make things easier for them and to tell the story of a silent actor makes sense for doing a silent movie.More Michel Hazanavicius quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I try to respect the rules of the silent movies and I tried to make signification to make sense, and also the crew were very good and the fact that we shot in LA in the real Hollywood, studios and houses. We shot in the bed of Mary Pickford, and you cannot be any more accurate than that, so that helped a lot.More Michel Hazanavicius quotes [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
I love silent cinema but don't hold it sacred. Like any branch of film there are some very boring films alongside the masterpieces.More Michel Hazanavicius quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I think we are at the very beginning of high changes, not only in terms of digital film, but in the way the movies will be screened, whether they'll be screened on phones, on computers - on everything.More Michel Hazanavicius quotes [03/12/2018 02:03:32]

Eugeny Antonuk The price of responding to stupidity is the lack of time for wisdom. People ignore folly, people envy wisdom. People are indulgent to stupidity, because it's nice to realize that you are a head taller than another, and from wisdom in a rage. [08/24/2018 03:08:22] More
