Screen

Total Quotes : 183
Been Mass

There is no doubt that, since 1977 and the launch of Apple II - the first computer it produced for the mass market - many things which used to be done on paper, or on the telephone, have been done easier and faster on a screen.

- A. N. Wilson

Sometimes Within

Wisdom comes from within. Knowledge is acquired and can sometimes put a screen on your wisdom.

- A. R. Rahman

Like Presenter

I don't like to be me. I'm not so comfortable being me on screen because then I'd be a presenter. I'm not Jimmy Fallon.

- Aaron Johnson

Pretending Show

The longer I spent time on 'The Daily Show,' standing in front of a green screen pretending to report from war zones and hot spots around the world - most often from somewhere in the Middle East - the more I began to realize that 'The Daily Show' was radicalizing me.

- Aasif Mandvi

Best Best Way

I still find the best way to understand a hospitalized patient whose care I am taking over is not by staring at the computer screen but by going to see the patient; it's only at the bedside that I can figure out what is important.

- Abraham Verghese

Fact TV

So-called reality TV, which dominates British channels, is destroying what made it cherishable to me and lots of others in the first place. I loved Alan Clarke, Ken Loach and Alan Bleasdale's work. In fact the first TV dramas I ever saw were 'Screen Twos' produced by David Thompson, who also produced a lot of Alan Clarke.

- Aidan Gillen

Ensemble Part

When you're part of an ensemble and share the screen with so many people, you become close to them because you're hanging out all the time. Obviously you have your ups and downs, but that kind of brings you closer in many ways.

- Aidan Turner

My Own Own

I'm an athletic actor. I'm known for my action; I'm a guy who does my own stunts on screen.

- Akshay Kumar

Celebrity Comics

When I started writing comics, 'comics writer' was the most obscure job in the world! If I wanted to be a celebrity, I would have become a moody English screen actor.

- Alan Moore

Feel Always

Many, many times I find that whatever is looking good on the screen doesn't always look or feel good on the body. So who do we design for - do we design for the screen, or do we design for women?

- Alber Elbaz

Mirror Been

In music, on stage and on screen, fairy tales have always been guaranteed moneymakers. It's no wonder then, that in these difficult economic times, there are fairy tales everywhere you turn. From 'Once Upon a Time' and 'Grimm,' to 'Mirror, Mirror' and 'Snow White and the Huntsman.'

- Alethea Kontis

Like Them

I like actors who, when you see them on screen, you sense a person, not just an actor.

- Alexander Payne

Yourself Seeing

It's odd seeing yourself on screen at all.

- Alexandra Daddario

Work Always

Screen work always boils down to that moment between the camera and the actor or the actors. It always boils down to that, ultimately. You serve the camera.

- Alfred Molina

Imagine Go

I'm an actor, but I'm also a feminist, and a lot of times in movies there are things that I cannot imagine happening that are on the screen and totally accepted. And I just go, 'Whaaat?'

- Alison Pill

Love Go

I love jokes that come out of nowhere. The ones where people look at the screen and go, 'What the Hell was that.' As long as it somehow ties back into the story, somehow.

- Allen Covert

Like Whole

Acting is fantastic, but to be able to create a whole world on celluloid is amazing. It's like taking your dreams straight from your head and projecting them onto a screen.

- Amber Benson

TV Eliminate

Limit or eliminate late-night computer and television viewing. A computer or TV screen may seem much dimmer than a light bulb, but these screens often fill your field of vision, mimicking the effects of a room filled with light.

- Andrew Weil

Die Quickly

If the only way you could read an email was to run a mile first, the urge would quickly die. Human beings constantly do subconscious effort/reward calculations. Tapping a screen is the easiest of physical tasks.

- Andrew Weil

Show Very

Wong Kar Wai is a very intense character, very personable, and I believe in general he does not like and he would not want his actors to show their true looks and their true personality on screen.

- Andy Lau

Down Around

I don't sit down in front of my computer screen and think, 'Right. Today I shall begin a story set in this or that period of history.' I just get ideas from the world around me.

- Ann Turner

Good Writing Reader

Really good writing, from my perspective, runs a lot like a visual on the screen. You need to create that kind of detail and have credibility with the reader, so the reader knows that you were really there, that you really experienced it, that you know the details. That comes out of seeing.

- Ann Voskamp

I Think Brought

I think the first British actor who really worked well in cinema was Albert Finney. He was a back-street Marlon Brando. He brought a great wittiness and power to the screen. The best actor we've had.

- Anthony Hopkins

Very Equally

Steve Martin is one of the most intelligent, well-read human beings that I've ever come across. He is equally as funny off screen as he is on. But he also has a very intellectual side, and he's a really nice human being. We actually become good friends.

- Anthony LaPaglia

Independent Why

I only pay to take my son to the movies, because most of the time I only watch European movies, independent movies, or screen them privately. But I like to go to movies with my son because it's still fun; it reminds me of why I make movies.

- Antoine Fuqua

De Niro Allen

After working with Woody Allen, sharing screen space with De Niro was a dream come true.

- Anupam Kher

Love Would

I would love to share screen space with Pawan Kalyan.

- Anushka Shetty

Recognized Blotted

In the theater, while you recognized that you were looking at a house, it was a house in quotation marks. On screen, the quotation marks tend to be blotted out by the camera.

- Arthur Miller

Love Made

Most authors would love to see their characters made for the screen, especially one that's quite colourful.

- Arthur Slade

Seeing Very

I'm very uncomfortable with my body, and I'm not interested in people seeing it on screen.

- Alicia Silverstone

TV Boyfriend

My first celeb crush was Hanson. I loved all three of them. My sister and I would always fight, and whenever they would come on the TV, we would always give them a kiss on the TV. And I also had a crush on Jonathan Taylor Thomas. Every time he would come on the screen, he was like my boyfriend. I was such a nerd like that.

- Ashley Benson

Book Works

An author entices the readers with their words, and it is painful for them to even lose a sentence. But films and books are two different mediums and should be dealt differently. What works in a book might not work for a film. When I saw 'Anna Karenina' on screen, I didn't like it at all, whereas 'The Godfather' was legendary.

- Ashwin Sanghi

Bad Average

People... need a time to laugh. It's up to us to bonk ourselves on the head and slip on a banana peel so the average guy can say, 'I may be bad, honey, but I'm not as much of an idiot as that guy on the screen.'

- Chris Farley

Away Very

It's good to get away from the editing suite. It's very unhealthy to be sitting in front of the screen for too long.

- Christian Marclay

Stomach Reason

I have a weak stomach. My wife is a doctor, so she finds it funny that I actually pass out when I get my blood drawn. I physically can't stand gore on screen. I can't stand blood and guts. Not for any puritanical/moral high-ground reason. I just don't want to black out.

- Christopher Denham

Play Will

I don't play long parts. They must be short parts, but they've got to be parts that mean something, that matter, where people will notice when I'm on the screen, and people will remember the character after they've seen the film.

- Christopher Lee

Bad Afraid

I'm not afraid to look bad on the screen.

- Clint Eastwood

Interesting Line

I mean, I do believe that when you walk on the stage, or onto the screen, that's your character - not you. So it's an interesting challenge, an interesting line to walk.

- Cody Horn

Better Person Next

I know what the important things are in life. I know that just because I pretend to be someone else for two hours on the silver screen doesn't make me a better person than the next man. So, I mind all those things. Simple things.

- Colin Farrell

Movie Blink

I now hate actors that blink too much on screen. When people blink, I turn the movie off. So I don't blink at all.

- Craig Roberts

Been Put

A lot of times, when mother-son or mother-daughter relationships have been put on screen, they tend to trickle towards ugly, and I don't find that totally realistic for the wide swath of us, and it's also not that fun to watch.

- Dan Fogelman

Big Around

When I started making films, all the theaters, the screen would slide open the widest possible point, and that would be widescreen. But now, theaters are geared up for around 16:9, so scope is now 'letterboxed.' In a way, if you want the big picture, you shoot 16:9.

- David MacKenzie

British Adaptation

'An Inspector Calls' is a British classic, and I am thrilled to be working on this beautiful screen adaptation with Aisling Walsh.

- David Thewlis

Gems Mad

I was mad at Screen Gems, but I'm not mad at them anymore.

- Davy Jones

Perfect Bandwidth

The smart phone isn't a perfect device, as we all know. It forces the world into a tiny screen. It runs out of battery, bandwidth, and power. It distracts us from the world around us.

- John Battelle

Color Sound

As with sound, images are subjective. You and I may not see the same color red as red, but we will probably agree that the image on the screen is a digital image or film image, based on contrast, bit depth, and refresh rate.

- John Dykstra

Friendships Had

Tony, Stacy and Jay really looked at life completely different and that played into everything that they did, whether it was skating or with their friendships. And for the three of us, we had such a close relationship off screen, that it was so easy to have that on screen.

- John Robinson

Tell Some

With some actors, you can tell when they're acting all by themselves, no matter who else is in the screen.

- John Travolta

Go Film School

I didn't go to film school so my learning was done out in public and showed up on the screen.

- Jonathan Demme

Big I Think

It seems that we're heading toward the day that films will be released in all platforms simultaneously, albeit with a cost premium to see it at home. But I hope that theater-going doesn't end - I think that watching movies on the big screen with an audience is still the best format and also an important one for society.

- Jonathan Mostow

Sometimes Other

If you're working with someone who you get on with and you're supposed to hate them on the screen, then you get this playful challenge thing where you're trying to one-up each other and that's really interesting. Sometimes it can become like tennis. The harder you hit the ball back, then the harder the hit it back to you.

- Joseph Morgan

Big Feels

A pen is different from the pad, the key, moving your fingers across a screen. I like both. I like to work on sketchbooks, big old white sketch paper. I like how that feels, and I like to put different media on it. Then there's the phone, smartphone, iPad: It's the new page, and it's not the same page anymore.

- Juan Felipe Herrera

Studio Show

Just because it reads well doesn't mean it's always going to look good on screen. Then, a network or studio has to pick up the show, and then they have to order more episodes, and then people have to watch it. It could be the greatest thing on television that nobody ever watches.

- Justin Hartley

Makeup Having

Having done 'M. Butterfly,' I'm conscious of the choices women make with their clothes and makeup on screen.

- B. D. Wong

Bring Visceral

I really wanted to make 'Everest' visceral, real. One thing that amazed me when I was scouting in base camp is the volume of Everest: It's humbling. I wanted to find a way to bring that to the screen. One way was 3D.

- Baltasar Kormakur

Brain Your

You just have to re-wire your brain when you're shifting from the stage to the screen or the silver screen or the HD flat screen.

- Beau Willimon

Everything Even

The screen magnifies everything, even the way you are thinking.

- Bela Lugosi

Will Actor

A screen actor is compensated in the knowledge that millions will see his performance at one time, where only hundreds will see it on the stage.

- Bela Lugosi

Sword Looks

Sword fighting is just as fun as it looks on the screen.

- Ben Barnes

Sense Bring

I know I've got the ability to bring a sense of menace to the screen. I have that specific competence, and it's generally kept me working.

- Harry Dean Stanton

Tools Other

You could summarize everything I did at Apple was making tools to empower creative people. 'QuickDraw' empowered all these other programmers to now be able to sling stuff on the screen. The 'Window Manager,' 'Event Manager,' and 'Menu Manager.' Those are things that I worked on that were empowering other people.

- Bill Atkinson

Sure Audience

It sure looks good to see an honest-to-goodness audience after looking at you all for so long from the silver screen.

- Hattie McDaniel

Think Very

I'm leaving the screen because I don't think I am very good in the pictures and I have this beautiful dream that I'm elegant on the stage.

- Helen Hayes

Buy Been

I do think that it's better for a musical to live its life first because if you see it on the screen, would you like to go to the theater after that? Probably not. You've seen it. And that's the mystery of a musical that hasn't been filmed. You're bloody meant to go there and buy your ticket.

- Bjorn Ulvaeus

Love Big

It's a music video but she was real specific on the character that Mary J. Blige was playing, and that I was playing in this video and I told her whenever you get to jump to the big screen I'd love to come with you and she honored that.

- Blair Underwood

More John Wayne

John Wayne represents more force, more power than anyone else on the screen.

- Howard Hawks

About Most Amazing

One of the most amazing things I got from the film, so much green screen, there are so many moments and it really taught me about how important it is to have an intention when flying, when going somewhere and having an intention.

- Brandon Routh

Real Particular

I can't act, and so I have to live that particular character in my real life and then exhibit it on screen.

- Hrithik Roshan

Without Your

You can still have chemistry on screen without getting on with the person. But it just makes your job a lot easier if you don't have to gird your loins, if that's not quite the right phrase, every time you're going to do a scene with that person.

- Hugh Dancy

Cut Blog

I deliberately keep myself apart from a lot of stuff; I don't Tweet, I don't do Facebook, I don't blog, and that's largely because I spend my working life staring at a screen and hitting a keyboard, I am trying to cut down on that, not increase it.

- Iain Banks

Bigger Them

The people I worked with were bigger than life. Once you put them on the screen, they were huge.

- Bruce Dern

Lot

I do a lot of screen re-writing.

- Bruce Vilanch

Love Happy

Just being able to get paid to do something you love is a wonderful thing. That said, a writer's daily routine, unless you're Dominick Dunne, isn't exactly glamorous. Much of it amounts to drudgery, staring at a computer screen all day in a room by yourself, juggling nouns and verbs to make a demanding editor happy.

- Bryan Burrough

Own Other

I really want to be the black Tina Fey, where I just am able to produce my own content and produce other content for other minority filmmakers and put their voices on screen and basically be able to have free range to produce.

- Issa Rae

Believe Had

I couldn't believe it! I mean, I'd always dreamed of acting on the screen - my previous background was all theater - but I wasn't sure if the opportunity would ever present itself. Not only was this acting for the screen, this was acting in 'The Hunger Games!' I knew that I had to give this audition my all.

- Jacqueline Emerson

Wide Billy

One of my favourite movies is Billy Wilder's 'The Apartment.' It's shot in super wide screen, and it's beautiful.

- James Mangold

Very Facing

What I try very hard to do is have an hour or so in the morning when I leave the house and don't have my phone with me. I'll go sit in a cafe and read and handwrite in my notebook and not be facing a screen. My head will be clear. I will be able to hear myself think. Because honestly for the rest of the day it's just screens, screens, screens.

- Jami Attenberg

Thought Big

I was a big Mickey Rourke fan in his first incarnation. I thought that at the time he was America's greatest screen actor.

- Jamie Sives

Very Kinds

Technology is a major tool in exploring and challenging your creativity, but it can also overtake your creativity... My mind goes very fast, and I can see all kinds of images that would be spectacular on the screen. But they would cost so much money, and would they really make the story that much better?

- Jan de Bont

Work Why

My favorite on screen moments are when you are really there and you know you're creating something. That's so exciting... it's why you come to work.

- Jason Dohring

Kind Like

The camera was kind to me. But I was never a screen personality like Gable or Flynn. The camera did something with their faces that was special.

- Don Ameche

Over Hurdle

Once you get over the hurdle of how to get something on the screen, it's not that difficult to make apps and share them with your friends.

- Jeff Minter

Date About

I was notified on July 17 to be ready to start August 7 for an October air date. When we reached the screen we did not have a single segment ready. It was done so fast the writers never got a chance to know what it was all about.

- Jeffrey Hunter

Interesting Played

I've never played a gay character on screen, so that would be interesting. I've never played a gay character, and that would fascinate me because I'm not gay, so that would interest me.

- Eddie Marsan

Believe Magic

What a costume designer does is a cross between magic and camouflage. We create the illusion of changing the actors into what they are not. We ask the public to believe that every time they see a performer on the screen, he's become a different person.

- Edith Head

Why Movie

People that went to art house theatre have more options, I used to go, but now think any movie can be delivered in a red envelope three months after it's released so why not watch it on my flat screen in the comfort of home.

- Edward Burns

Will Like

The difference between psychedelia and digitalia ages will seem like a smooth blending in years to come and will be a mere blip on the screen.

- Edward Ruscha

Woman Tears

A woman came up to me after one of the screenings with tears pouring down her face and sobbed, You've defined my entire life for me on the screen.

- Jill Clayburgh

My Own Own

I've portrayed so many diverse individuals on the screen that my own personality never emerged.

- Eleanor Parker

Say Before

Can any sane person say that before something comes on the Net you must screen it? How can there be pre-screening?

- Kapil Sibal

Alien Tight

As far as I can see women who have facelifts don't look younger, just weirder. You see them on screen with these tight, little porcelain faces - then the hand goes up to the face and it looks like it belongs to an alien. I find it really freaky.

- Elizabeth McGovern

Doing Hands

I can't watch most of my work. Once I come on screen, all I can think of is 'What am I doing with my hands?' or 'Why did I lean that way?' or 'What's that look on my face?' It's too difficult to not focus on evaluating my acting.

- Katie McGrath

Audience Cut

It's rare that you cut out something that is really good. You screen all of it, and when the audience doesn't respond, you cut out whatever is holding the story down.

- Keenen Ivory Wayans

Like Looked

Particles were coming out of the lithium, hitting the screen, and producing scintillations. They looked like stars suddenly appearing and disappearing.

- Ernest Walton

Directors Title

You could name the great stars of the silent screen who were finished; the great directors gone; the great title writers who were washed up. But remember this, as long as you live: the producers didn't lose a man. They all made the switch. That's where the great talent is.

- Ernst Lubitsch

Forgive Mic

I auditioned for Robert Redford once and I was so starstruck I couldn't even speak. I had a mic wire at a screen test clipped to me and then I got kind of nervous and I paced in a circle and then took a step and tripped and fell on my face. You just have to forgive yourself and keep going on.

- Ethan Hawke

Kind Phones

We're so connected, kind of ever-presently, with technology now. People are carrying their phones with them and looking at the screen so much.

- Kevin Lynch

Myself Seeing

I couldn't stand seeing myself on the screen.

- Eve Arden

Blank About

Never sit staring at a blank page or screen. If you find yourself stuck, write. Write about the scene you're trying to write. Writing about is easier than writing, and chances are, it will give you your way in.

- Laini Taylor

Words Sound

I have this peculiar ability to be able to anticipate mouth movements on screen and fill them with words or sound.

- Frank Welker
