Of all the people I’ve ever asked about what it takes to be a filmmaker and how to get there the most consistent piece of advice has been: do, see, explore, and absorb so you can have something to write about. 

Things That Inspired Me This Week:

Note To Self: The art of filmmaking comes from within.

Cinema is a specificity of vision. It’s an approach in which everything matters. It’s the polar opposite of generic or arbitrary and the result is as unique as a signature or a fingerprint. It isn’t made by a committee, and it isn’t made by a company, and it isn’t made by the audience. It means that if this filmmaker didn’t do it, it either wouldn’t exist at all, or it wouldn’t exist in anything like this form.

There are exceptions, but for me, music makes cinema. Here’s a video exploring how several legendary directors use music in their films. This is a short episode of Auteur Theories, that doesn’t go too far into depth with any of them, but offers a brief survey. The lack of Tarantino may be disturbing to some, but I couldn’t find a place for him in this video. I might make a short of the same length exploring Tarantino’s amazing musical predilections alone. That said, my favorite musical moment in cinema is not featured in this video. It is the opening minutes of Terrance Malick’s The New World. —Auteur Theories: Of Song and Cinema

- “Wheel of Fortune” by Kay Starr LA Confidential (ALL of the music, really)
- “500 Miles” in Benny & Joon
- “White Rabbit” Jefferson Airplane from Sopranos S01xE07 (Watch)
- “Angel” by Massive Attack from Burn Notice S07E07
