We don't live in the world of reality, we live in the world of how we perceive reality.— Bryan Singer
The most terrific Bryan Singer quotes that will add value to your life
You can only go so far in analyzing each and every one person's opinion because they are often quite different. You just have to trust your instincts and hope that if someone doesn't like your idea, you can prove them wrong in the final process. In the end, you can please some of the people some of the time, but that's about all you can do.
I love filmmaking, and I love the process.
And I would rather do nothing else. It's a privilege to be able to paint such big pictures, so to speak.
Perception has always interested me. The idea thatbehind every face, there are a thousand faces. Beneath the placidveneer of middle America, there lies terror.

Once I start something, I always finish it.
They had been trying to get X-Men made for 30 years and they thought maybe if I got involved, it might actually happen.
I love Hugh Jackman. Love Hugh Jackman. He's the coolest. He's one of the coolest actors I've ever worked with, and I'll do anything with him.
When you're dealing with shooting a lot of live action in 3D, you're committed to how much 3D you're giving the audience.
I know what to do with the camera because I see the giant in the camera when I'm operating it live on the set.
If you give the actors a problem 'I'm not getting something out of the scene' and it's the writing, we just don't have the scene, if you give them the problem and just give them some key thoughts they can bring some great solutions to the equation too. So if it's just not perfect, or I'm not getting all I can, I'll open it up to them and say let's talk about it.
The 3D, it changes the way you shoot in a way, especially when you're shooting live action 3D elements.
There's no point in making films unless you intend to show us something special, otherwise just go out and watch a play. Kubrick showed us something special. Every film was a challenge, and a direct assault on cinema's conventions.
Since I started making films, I've been a nut for dialogue.
When I first saw Star Wars when I was 12 years old, I came home and recited all of the lines from it. Before I talked about Death Stars exploding and Tie Fighters I was talking about how funny Princess Leia was and how sarcastic Han Solo was. So to me that's always the most important thing, and I love hearing great actors say great lines.
You just have to trust your instincts and hope that if someone doesn't like your idea, you can prove them wrong in the final process. In the end, you can please some of the people some of the time, but that's about all you can do.

I started making 8mm films when I was 13, so I've been directing for 21 years.
