Go Creative… With Francis Ford Coppola
Last Time: Go Creative… With Haruki Murakami
“It’s unfair, when you begin to create a shot, say, or a scene, [to expect] that it’s going to immediately be like those beautiful scenes in the movies. It needs a little bit of time to mature.
“It’s like taking the cake out without letting it be in the oven for more than a minute. Like, ‘oh no, it’s terrible’.
“Be patient, and then slowly everyone starts to see that the ideas are right, or make the corrections. You have to battle the lack of confidence by giving the scene the chance to solidify.
“We are very insecure… not just young people. Everyone is insecure. They say that Barbara Streisand, when she goes on, she has a panic attack. She feels she can’t sing.
“Of course, she can sing.”
