Never Films

Studios never put pressure. They know the kind of films I want to make.

- Anurag Kashyap

Cards Films

I'm not saying that the action/science-fiction genre is bad in itself. I make those films. I'm just saying that the studios have put all their cards on black.

- Jim Ed Brown

Think Movie

When we do a movie with the studios, they wouldn't be asking us to do it, I don't think, if it was a movie they wanted to get into themselves. What you see is what you get with us, so they let us do what we want to do.

Business Movie

The core of the movie business remains intact and it's not descending in scope. Studios want movies that are bigger than ever.

- John Belushi

Go Set

And for me the only way to live life is to grab the bull by the horns and call up recording studios and set dates to go in recording studios. To try and accomplish something.

Still Then

I just hope, every now and then, the studios still slip one of my movies in.

Music Movie

- Bahman Ghobadi

Look Stabilized

If you look at successful studios, they're the ones with stabilized management.

When studios start telling me why a particular film project won't work, I remember 'Rocky.' I remember that the biggest success Bob Chartoff and I have had was a film nobody wanted to make.

- Irwin Winkler

Been Sold

I mean, I've sold all these scripts and nothing's been made. Studios have closed, stars have died. I had a director find Jesus. And the pictures just don't get made.

I was working at the store on the Sony studios in Culver City. And I was literally holding a shirt when they came in and told me I'd got the part! It just shows dreams do come true.

Think I Think

I think we have to bottom out. When the studios jump out of the ring, perhaps the artist can get back in.

Jazz Like

Electronic musicians are quite like writers or painters. They are quite isolated in their home studios. We often don't have that the opportunity to collaborate with that many people, like in rock or jazz.

- Jean-Michel Jarre

Other Beating

The beating heart of your story... that's not what shows up in a trailer. The other stuff is what shows up in a trailer, because that's what gets people in to the seats, and that's how studios make their money.

Very Another

The major studios don't differ very much from one another as they all operate under essentially the same principles and pressure.

Always Had

From that time on, I always had the studios on my neck.

World Florida

Florida has tons of entertainment opportunities because Walt Disney World and Universal Studios are there.

Deal May

Things have changed a great deal since the days of Mr. Mayer. The studios no longer control, as they did in those days, artists or directors or producers, as the case may be.

- Lew Wasserman

Like Tell

Let me tell you, there's nothing like pulling up to Fox Studios bumping Jeezy in your Mercedes.

- Lil Rel Howery

Funding Costs

The key thing for me is to secure medium-term funding for the Roundhouse studios. It costs around £2m a year to run, but we want to grow it, and of course that will cost more.

Fact Disney

The fact that Disney bought Maker Studios doesn't really change anything for me.

- PewDiePie

Movie Opposed

'Black film,' that term allows studios to just marginalize a movie and say, 'We've made our black film. We've made our film with people of color in it,' as opposed to, 'I just feel like people of color should be in every genre.'

- Gina Prince-Bythewood

Hollywood Movie

Movie studios could learn a thing or two from British publishers. There is an intelligence, and a respect for writers; things that you hope for and never get in Hollywood.

Help Efforts

Relatives cannot help you in the studios. You stand or fall by your own efforts.

Love Been

I would love to have been around in the Keystone Studios days.

Think Always

I am always surprised at what movie studios think people will want to see. I'm even more surprised at how often they are correct.

- Sam Taylor-Johnson

Movies Messed

My movies are not messed with by the studios.

Play Basement

Studios are passe for me. I'd rather play in a garage, in a truck, or a rehearsal hall, a club, or a basement.

Big Shades

Unless any book is selling 30 million copies, like 'Fifty Shades of Grey' did, the big studios are not going to make movies out of them because the cost is too high.

- Tosca Musk

Audience About

I know my audience, and they're not people that the studios know anything about.

- Tyler Perry

Cut Been

And I maintain good relationships with all the studios so I've never been bullied into any cut, frankly.

Commercial TV

Sometimes you can do a TV show on a subject you just can't do in film. Either it's too long or studios will perceive it as not being commercial.

Music Get

I get the music, I get the beats. And I go to the studios and write the lyrics.

Over Which

There are so many venues in which stars are exposed today, that we just know much more and the studios don't have the control over stars like they used to, in the 30s, 40s, and 50s.

- Mary Hart

Other Like

We were like a stock company at Warners. We didn't know any of the stars from the other studios.

- Olivia De Havilland

Films Supposedly

Hood films now are made by studios and have nothing to do with the reality they supposedly represent.

Memphis Set

Most studios in Memphis had a house set of drums; the drummers just brought their own sticks.

- Steve Cropper

Think Big

I don't think I'll ever be a producer who's into taking the meetings and fighting the big fights with studios. I really don't like that part. I'm much more interested in the material.

Singing Through

Studios are designed to pull out all of that beautiful ambience you get from singing in a room, and then the engineer puts it back in digitally or through whatever machinery you've got.

- Patty Griffin

Through Clutter

Studios, to cut through the clutter, want recognisable titles. But that does not excuse you, as a writer, from having an original story.

- Roberto Orci

Solid Hours

After Nashville sushi and a long debate on Bob Dylan, we went into Woodland Studios at 10 pm that night for a look around, and jammed for 5 hours solid.

- Robyn Hitchcock

Took Tap

I grew up in dance studios. I was forced to be in several numbers in recitals and dance competitions. I took one tap class - literally one class - and then I quit.

- Michael Angarano

Company Ended

The company, Tiffany Studios, ended up in bankruptcy in 1930 - early '30s.

- Susan Vreeland

Charge Very

Studios are an assembly line. They can be a very good assembly line. As a producer, you concentrate on one project at a time. As an executive, you're in charge of a slate.

- Michael De Luca
