Gave me a better understanding of some films I've never seen.
Martin Scorsese - a genius mind and eye for filmmaking. I learned to trust my feelings and judgement, not to be afraid. To go with my gut and step out of the normal into the unknown. This will be my opportunity to bring my thoughts into vision.
True lessons of cinematographic art, one of the greatest directors of our time. Love the cinema, like a beat of life. Like the spark of the director's magic, and the movie. The cinema is a mystery to discover that you learn by doing. The cinema is a dream, of shadows and light that is made of time.
Masterful teaching from a true master. Insightful! Wonderful! A true joy!
