Stephen Spielberg on when it’s magical

“It’s never magical until people tell you it was magical.”

Steven Spielberg

There’s some great stuff in these interviews via @jonpdx. A little neutered, but I’m hungry for these kinds of interviews.

“I had a point of view about how you could recalibrate the tone of it, and the balance.”

Ron Howard

I like this quote from Ron Howard because it’s my kind of skill: I’m shit-poor at inventing a story, but I’m great at editing and developing, having a point of view about where it should go and how it should get there. This is how he got involved in the movie in the first place. I thought that was cool.
