Robert Muller QUOTES / QUOTATIONS
Also his directing towards me was strange, I had to get used to it, he gave me a memo on A4 paper and it was only literature about the next day.
Quotation of Robert Muller
Although I did I give myself a time limit, I promised myself that if I reached thirty six and nothing had happened, I would become a carpenter or whatever.
Quotation of Robert Muller
Anyway, in my life as a cameraman you are confronted practically every one to two years with a new thing, a new technique, and everybody runs away with it.
Quotation of Robert Muller
Everybody surrenders at that point. Also, people have less influence and less power to choose their own thing.
Quotation of Robert Muller
I also thought it was very important to be in closer contact with the actors, so they knew I was the guy behind the black box filming them.
Quotation of Robert Muller
I am not able to do it because you are busy with them twenty-four hours a day or more. I've understood that directors must be like that.
Quotation of Robert Muller
I changed schools fairly often, so I had to learn straight away which people in my class would become my friends for these short periods of time.
Quotation of Robert Muller
I could execute them and see the results. I went into the real shooting myself afterwards, so it was a good transition.
Quotation of Robert Muller
I had friends who were either painters or musicians or writers or poets and I liked the bohemian life, it attracted me.
Quotation of Robert Muller
I knew it was in development but you still hang onto the official photography book and keep everything sharp and well exposed.
Quotation of Robert Muller
I realised early on in my career that if I had, say, a trick to give a great look, I suppose I would be out of fashion soon and I would be jobless.
Quotation of Robert Muller
I think in my case it is much more personal. I get motivated by him calling me, by him having an exchange with me. Just be honest, have your own integrity.
Quotation of Robert Muller
I want to avoid that, so I always give the actor the lead in the movement of the camera. I thought it was much more fluent and less intrusive, I wasn't the teacher, I was following it as well as the audience.
Quotation of Robert Muller
I was always very careful to keep that atmosphere on set and most of it involved very little light because when you have a lot of light you are changing it incredibly, and you have to make a new location in a sense.
Quotation of Robert Muller
I was not always satisfied with the operating I saw. It was aiming more than composing. It has stiffness in it that you can still see in cinemas now.
Quotation of Robert Muller
I was not bothered with that at that moment in time. I just hoped I exposed everything well and I did not make any mistakes. My biggest struggle was actually the techniques.
Quotation of Robert Muller
I went there to work because at the time it didn't have a very big industry like now, it was no place to get on the camera.
Quotation of Robert Muller
If you choose a very polished guy you get polished images. In some systems that works, like in mainstream films you need a guy who gives a solid performance and that's it.
Quotation of Robert Muller
It broke the ice. He is a director in the pre-production, and during the shoot he just got rid of the obstacles that were in his way of doing what he wanted.
Quotation of Robert Muller
It has helped me with choosing my crew, straight from the belly. I had to struggle and not look back.
Quotation of Robert Muller
It is just like juggling with words, you know. I remember having a big room. Peter is a writer, he is not a real film director.
Quotation of Robert Muller
It is my own way of working. Also, in the studio I use extremely little light because I discovered, when you use an enormous amount of light, you are blowing away the real atmosphere.
Quotation of Robert Muller
It was a very different way of working, similar to films with a writer and not with a well-known professional director.
Quotation of Robert Muller
It was difficult to explain that I don't work like this. The gaffer was very happy and all the lights were standing and it looked kind of beautiful.
Quotation of Robert Muller
It's business and I don't feel at home. Although I know it's business I still like to make films with people who are emotionally involved and don't talk politically.
Quotation of Robert Muller
It's like the super new lenses, basically, and it's a cliche of course, a good photographer can also do great photographs with a box camera.
Quotation of Robert Muller
It's more the mentality, it's in a way like making cars, you make something, it sells and it's your main thing.
Quotation of Robert Muller
Now we are going to give it life. Mould it. He was shocked by this. I didn't want to work the way they were trained there, the way that they are very obedient to the studios, the way they made very polished images.
Quotation of Robert Muller
On that first terrible day, somehow there was something on the screen, on the rushes. In that film I slowly got self-confidence, and I could execute things I had in mind.
Quotation of Robert Muller
So I wrote a letter to the Queen of Holland to ask to be released from the army and there I was in an Amsterdam film school.
Quotation of Robert Muller
That's a waste of a young life you know. With him, he took away the obstacles so there was no rushing in with make-up when you stopped shooting for a second. to get them back.
Quotation of Robert Muller
The first film I did was with the assistant director of the film, he made it in Bavaria in South Germany and asked me to be his cameraman, and so it all started.
Quotation of Robert Muller
The special occasion was caused by the train arriving in the station, which was open, and the banks were full of grass, the shock wave of the train would flatten the grass, it was his idea.
Quotation of Robert Muller
The thing is, nowadays it doesn't happen that often. He let me light a lot of scenes, so that was my big school; I could see the results at the rushes.
Quotation of Robert Muller
The thing is, when I am on location I first look to see what the location offers me in terms of light. It was all available location, not studio work.
Quotation of Robert Muller
Then I discovered that everything he described could only be seen in that room with two different camera points of view. When I discovered that the next day, I could put the camera exactly in the right position.
Quotation of Robert Muller
This is not understood by a lot of production companies nowadays because you are either available or you are not and they don't wait for you.
Quotation of Robert Muller
To forgive is the highest, most beautiful form of love. In return, you will receive untold peace and happiness.
Quotation of Robert Muller
To see mangrove trees with a solid green makes people look at the landscape instead of the people. The same with Deadman.
Quotation of Robert Muller
We could develop a film and change the script and choose our own actors and we had the final cut, all the things that Jim Jarmusch still does, but he loses, as with everything, half his budget.
Quotation of Robert Muller
We had in Europe at least, and on the continent, at that time, a much looser thing and its maybe not that realistic nowadays, but we had much more freedom.
Quotation of Robert Muller
When they say cut, suddenly all the actors have dandruff on their shoulders and the make-up is gone, I never could never see anything that made filming worth stopping.
Quotation of Robert Muller
When you give them that control you won't recognise your own film after a while because they start cutting it, making it lighter and darker, whatever they think, mostly lighter.
Quotation of Robert Muller
Why are we doing it in colour, why are we not doing it in black and white? So at least, even when I am forced to do it in colour, I know what I'm actually working on.
Quotation of Robert Muller
Working with another operator is a bit like a painter making a painting and then later somebody else cuts out the frame for it. I would rather make my own frame.
Quotation of Robert Muller
You can tell your story without being exotic in the background to give it a nice wrapping. I think it is always good to realise why you are doing it in colour or black and white.
Quotation of Robert Muller
You have to really go for it and devote your life to it. I realise who I am and where I stand. I am not a director.
Quotation of Robert Muller
You must make a choice, we must have a rhythm in the focus, before the eye looks for it. I had a great assistant and he understood this as well.
