Tarantino didn’t sign up for this digital shit…

 

I’m always interested to hear directors talk about their craft and the trial and tribulations they encounter when making movies.  This brings me to this years annual roundtable discussion hosted by The Hollywood Reporter with the tops directors running for the Oscars race in 2013.

The directors chatting are Tarantino (Django Unchained), Tom Hooper (Les Miserables), Ang Lee (Life of Pi), David O. Russell (Silver Linings Playbook), Ben Affleck (Argo), and Gus Van Sant (Promised Land).

Out of all the directors Quentin Tarantino is the most vocal and super honest (check out his latest interview with Howard Stern if you want to delve deeper into Tarantino and who the man is).  They all talk about hurdles when it comes to editing and how you have to part with your favourite scenes or shots, or how they write scripts and what their process is on set and what goes on in their minds.

The most intriguing part of the chat is when Tarantino openly admits how he is not a fan of the digital era overtaking filmmaking.  He sees it as TV in public and he didn’t sign up for this at all.  He’s very vocal about it and basically goes on to talk about how he will quit the business to write novels and film history literature when he gets to an age where he’s lost touch with the world.  Sounds rather crazy…watch on and enjoy.  One thing about Tarantino he is a passionate man who believes in his vision.  Something to admire I think…

 

Until next time…
