Genre labels are useful only insofar as they help you find an audience.
It's a tough job to tell a story when the audience already knows the ending, and the ending is bleak.
Being black, I'm involved in the reparations movement. It's focused toward the African-American audience. We could begin to heal.
Seems like it's going to be really hard to make money at it, and, therefore, really hard to get any great games done. Much like Flash games, the audience is huge, but the content isn't likely to be good enough to have people pay for it.
My sense of responsibility to the audience is to screen things that they would never see in a local theater.
I like playin' for an audience the best, though, I think.
There's still a 1950s view of cinema, that there's one audience and they all want to see the same thing.
Well if I was going to describe my audience, it's going to take longer than you'd ever expect, hundreds of years in fact, because there's many of them, all over the world.
Drama or comedy programming is still the surest way for advertisers to reach a mass audience. Once that changes, all bets are off.
If I could live a parallel life, I would be a sitcom star; being in front of a live audience would be great.
All of the material for The Fine Line was created via improvisation with my partner, but not in front of an audience. We'd continue to refine it in front of an audience based on their responses until it was set and scripted.
I have no experience performing that music live in front of an audience. So that remains to be seen. I'm very excited to see what that's going to be like.
I'm facing upstage, with my back to the audience, and the spotlight comes up on my back as I start singing.
Cary Grant was wonderful to work with on stage. He would move downstage, so that as he looked at me the audience had to look at me, too. He knew a lot about the theater and how to move around. He was very secure.
I'm always shy in front of an audience, so I'm always at the back, in the shadows, just doing it. I don't like the front, the adulation.
I really want younger audience members to see kids in their early 20's playing Frank's music and to be inspired to take things to a higher level themselves.
I don't know if I'd want to do that anymore, because you always get bigger laughs on college campuses. So, when the film plays in front of a city audience, you've probably cut too loosely.
I don't take reviews very seriously, but in their totality I think they are representative of how the audience feels, and of what their reaction is. There's always one guy who doesn't get it.
I don't think there has been any increase in sophistication in the audience. When people are aware of a concept that's easy to understand, and there's an actor who will attract them to the theater and it's a movie that's funny three-quarters of the time, it will be successful.
I hope they get something of interest out of it, but I'd rather they all hate it and I like it, instead of vice versa... I make films to please myself first, and if the audience likes them, all the better.
