intro to documentary production
"To some people, this empty room symbolizes something profound, mysterious, and terrifying: the task of starting with nothing and working your way toward creating something whole and beautiful and satisfying."
"Some people find this moment - the moment before creativity begins - so painful that they simply cannot deal with it."
"The most productive ones get started early in the morning, when the world is quiet, the phones aren't ringing, and their minds are rested, alert, and not yet polluted by other people's words."
"There are no 'natural' geniuses."
"In order to be creative you have to know how to prepare to be creative."
