"Children’s and YA books are about being brave and kind, about learning wisdom and love, about that journey into and through maturity that we all keep starting, and starting again, no matter how old we get. I think that’s why so many adults read YA: we’re never done coming of age."

a-bittersweet-life:

An awareness of film history leads to a richer understanding of your art and further matures how you envision your film and how you approach the technical and artistic elements of filmmaking while staying true to your filmmaker’s style. Stanley Kubrick reinvents a visual sequence from Victor Sjöström’s The Phantom Carriage (1921) for The Shining (1980). He substitutes the croquet mallet in Stephen King’s novel to an axe and draws upon the film’s simple but emotionally effective editing and cinematography. Sometimes pieces of great films echo in others, and though there may be many reasons for it, certainly one must be in order to share in the timeless experiences that cinema offers. - How Emerging Filmmakers Can Change Hollywood

Can you talk about the specific sections on the train in the film? They all have their own unique vision and design. Each one almost feels like a short film that’s part of the bigger narrative. 

Bong Joon-Ho: Yeah, I think Tilda also felt that way. On the days she wasn’t shooting a scene, she would walk through different sections of the car and put on her costume and take photos and actually wanted to make a calendar. She really enjoyed every train car. The idea is you open the gate to get to the next car, and that was a key thing. Just the idea of where you are now and where you’re going to be in two seconds. Just in terms of color and texture and even the air. All that had to change drastically and that was the intention, especially after the greenhouse section. Up until then, it’s really kind of similar palates and similar feelings. And it’s sort of, if you will, the staff only section of a luxury hotel. (via)

"I love the communal experience of going. I think we human beings rely on ritual to remind ourselves that we’re all connected so I love going to the theatre and just sitting in a dark room with a bunch of strangers."

Still one of the coolest adverts for a tv series I’ve ever seen.

WOW, YES. 

Such clever advertising.

"No writing is wasted. Did you know that sourdough from San Francisco is leavened partly by a bacteria called lactobacillus sanfrancisensis? It is native to the soil there, and does not do well elsewhere. But any kitchen can become an ecosystem. If you bake a lot, your kitchen will become a happy home to wild yeasts, and all your bread will taste better. Even a failed loaf is not wasted. Likewise, cheese makers wash the dairy floor with whey. Tomato gardeners compost with rotten tomatoes. No writing is wasted: the words you can’t put in your book can wash the floor, live in the soil, lurk around in the air. They will make the next words better."
