Quote of the Day – July 20, 2010

“So many kids work backward methodically, calculatingly from a process instead of from the inside out in terms of what they want to express. All anybody really wants to find, (those) who take home stacks of scripts over the weekend, is an original voice that stirs them. Then they want to make you the same as everybody else, but for that first moment they want to see an original voice. It’s that method of calculation that I think hurt you. If you’re not going to have guts alone in a room, I mean when are you going to have guts?” – Writer/director Gary Ross
