“My process is very disempowering to the director anyway, so it’s essential that you be respectful. Once we’ve sort of found the scene, I have to get out of there, because you don’t want to split the actor’s idea of who’s in charge.”

― David Milch

“To think in terms of what the effect of a story is going to be, as opposed to trying to discover its inner logic, is one of the fundamental dangers in the process.”

“The process to resolve post-Islamic State issues will be difficult and intense.”

“When you have a conflict, that means that there are truths that have to be addressed on each side of the conflict.

“It’s no secret that my process is a little bit loose and can be a little bit infuriating to a studio if they don’t know what they’re signing up for.”

― Doug Liman

“For me, the scale of the budget is part of the creative process. ‘Swingers’ is the movie it is because we made it for exactly the right budget. Had it been made for a higher number, it would not have been as imaginative as we had to make it, given the budget constraints we had.”

“If you sequence a cancerous tumor, you should be able to tailor the therapy according to the root cause of the cancer.

― Harriet Martineau

“It seems to me we are now, since 1789, going through the same sort of process of regeneration the Roman world went through between 300 and 500. It is only to be hoped all civilization will not again be destroyed by the anarchists.”

“It seems Russians hacked into emails from both the Democratic National Committee and Republican National Committee and then chose to release only the DNC emails.

“Even if you’re an optimist, there’s some part of you that just tries to toughen up and be pragmatic and go, ‘This isn’t gonna happen. This isn’t gonna happen.’ I really felt that way through the process of ‘Korra’ because I knew ‘Avatar,’ and I knew how wonderful it was, and I was so terrified.”

― Janet Varney

“We’re basically this very young species, only 200,000 years old. We’re one of the newcomers, and we’re going through the same process that other species go through, which is, how do I keep myself alive while taking care of the place that’s going to keep my offspring alive?”

“In live-action, writing, production, and editing happen in discrete stages. In animation, they overlap – happening simultaneously. This allows a real dialogue to occur between the writer, the director, the actors, and the editor, and it makes the writing process a lot more collaborative and a lot less lonely.”

― Michael Arndt

“Even though, theoretically, being a composer and being a songwriter are the same thing, in my brain, they are completely different. When I am in my composing mode, I go into my studio and turn that part of my brain on like a faucet. And when I finish, I turn it off. But with songwriting, that process is much more elusive.”

“Globalization is the process by which markets integrate worldwide.”

― Mike Pompeo

“The military tribunals currently underway at Guantanamo Bay create a clear legal process, as affirmed by the U.S. Supreme Court in Hamdi v. Rumsfeld, for adjudicating the cases of these terrorists, when possible. Those efforts would be severely undercut by moving the detainees to the United States.”

― Nathan Myhrvold

“My work sells for £10,000-plus, but my most lucrative piece was a private project that was sold for more than six figures -dollars, that is. The process of the Lego can take weeks, months, or even days. Each one I deliver to specification to each gallery because they want them brought to them fully formed.”

“In the 1940s, traveling for an African was a complicated process.

Failure to do so could mean arrest, trial, a jail sentence or fine.”

“The idea of songwriting is a transformative thing, and what I do with songwriting is take situations that are quite ordinary and transform them in some way.

“’Luther’ is raw and brutal like ‘Game Of Thrones,’ but it’s coincidence. If I’m drawn to anything, it would be the writing. Choosing a project is an organic process where I’m taken in by the character and storyline, not the genre, whether fantasy or gritty and raw.”

― Rose Leslie

“There’s a process to everything. If you fast track or make shortcuts in any way, and you get too much of one thing, you’re just out of balance.”

“’Rocky’ is an incredibly human story, and ‘Creed’ is very inspired by the Rocky lore, but there’s something kind of profound in letting it all go. This is the first time I’m co-writing, and I’m learning as I go. This process is so different from ‘Fruitvale’; hopefully it gets made.”

“In orthodox film-making, you never shoot sequentially – but with improv, obviously every move you make has a knock-on effect; it is a cumulative process. I have improvised, on the non-scripted ‘Timecode.’ It can become entirely indulgent: actors smashing crockery and competing verbally.”

― Saffron Burrows

“When I choose a script, I ensure that I get to contribute to the film in some way and, in turn, grow as an actor in the process.”

― Sante D’Orazio

“My books have been translated into various languages and sold in other countries, but I never have any contact with the foreign publishers and am so disconnected from that process that it seems almost imaginary.

“EPA’s role is even broader than water infrastructure and cleaning up contaminated land – the agency also has a key role in allowing projects to move forward by reviewing environmental impact statements during the permitting process.”

― Scott Pruitt

“Honestly, in retrospect, when I referred to the actors from ‘Prince’ as non-actors or non-professionals, it was actually a great disservice to them. The fact is that they are all actors and should be viewed that way by the industry. It was our casting process that was non-professional.”

― Sean Baker

“It’s sort of one ongoing process where writing ends and directing starts.”

― Sean Durkin

― Sean Penn

“The thing that’s very close in the process is writing and acting, not directing. Directing’s very different.”

― Sean Penn

“Conflicts of interest’ arise when you’re not – when you’re sneaky about it, when you’re shady about it, when you’re not transparent about it. If you tell everyone, ‘Here’s what’s going on. Here’s the process; here are the people that are playing a role’ – that’s being transparent.”

“I’m interested in making something that moves quickly, that hopefully is compelling minute-by-minute but really packed densely with exploration. I’m very interested in how re-visitable we can make films. If we can get them closer to a music album, then it’s not such an arduous process to revisit, and exploration can be a bit more cryptic.”

― Sheila Heti

“The Fifth Amendment speaks specifically to denying someone their life and liberty without due process. That is what H.R. 2 does, and I rise in opposition to it. And I rise in opposition because it is important that we preserve lives and we recognize that 40 million-plus are uninsured.”

“Part of the process of reading is constantly hitting the pause button, and now and then the rewind button, to ponder a word that’s been chosen by the author as exquisitely as the filmmaker chooses an image or a sound editor chooses a sonic clue – the tolling of a bell in the distance to evoke memory, for instance.”
