Henry James

“We work in the dark – we do what we can – we give what we have. Our doubt is our passion and our passion is our task. The rest is the madness of the art.” – Henry James.

Henry James, OM (15 April 1843 – 28 February 1916) was an American-born writer, regarded as one of the key figures of 19th-century literary realism. He was the son of Henry James, Sr. and the brother of philosopher and psychologist William James and diarist Alice James.

I never read reviews, I’m not interested.

I was impress by his simple statement that :

I never read reviews. I’m not interested. But I value a lot the reactions of the spectators.

Do you typically come up with a great character, or a great concept first?

Screenwriting U asked a great question, a very important one to all the writers who has to ask one himself before his first step..

Shawshank Redemption

Shawshank

After a long long time i have seen this film in my life.. I heard this movie is a master piece, Today i felt the way..

Director: Frank Darabont

Writers: Stephen King

I want to share some of its wonderful dialogues i loved:

“Get busy living or get busy dying.” 

“…there’s no harm in hoping for the best as long as you’re prepared for the worst.”

Red: Let me tell you something my friend. Hope is a dangerous thing. Hope can drive a man insane.

Andy: Hope is good thing, may be the best of things and no good thing ever dies.

Read a nice analysis on this movie and i would like to share it here as a link.

This is unbelievable work ! Both Coppola and Murch.

He was editing picture for one year and spent another year preparing, mixing sound.. It turned out as a longest post production work in his career.

Can you believe.. 1,250,000 feet was printed for “Apocalypse Now” which is 230 hours, Final finished Film out:  2 hours and 25 mins.

95 unseen minutes for ever minute that found its way in to the finished product.
