Nicolas Roeg QUOTES / QUOTATIONS

Quotation of Nicolas Roeg
Any change in form produces a fear of change, and that has accelerated. Marketing is the death of invention, because marketing deals with the familiar.

Here in England, with the war, it was all documentaries and propaganda films, but film hadn't emerged as a whole other discipline of the arts.
Quotation of Nicolas Roeg
I made a film called Bad Timing that I thought everybody would respond to. It was about obsessive love and physical obsession. I thought this must touch everyone, from university dons down. But it had a curious effect on people - I sort of understood afterwards why it wasn't good for the company.

So quite a lot of people who've come into cinema from the commercials world have had to learn the very fact of what cinematography is over again.
Quotation of Nicolas Roeg
Some people are very lucky, and have the story in their heads. I've never storyboarded anything. I like the idea of chance. What makes God laugh is people who make plans.

Soon, just as people can now go to Rymans and buy paper to start writing a book, they'll be able to get stuff to start shooting a film.

The rules are learnt in order to be broken, but if you don't know them, then something is missing.
Quotation of Nicolas Roeg
There was a village watercolour society and they'd come and paint in my field. I watched them from the window, the way they would struggle this way and that to find the perfect moment. God has made every angle on that beautiful, and I felt that tremendously.
Quotation of Nicolas Roeg
They think something's gone wrong, but in Don't Look Now, for instance, one scene was made by a mistake. It's the scene where Donald Sutherland goes to look for the policeman who's investigating the two women.
