  1. Everything has to be well thought out - what do you really need, when can you do with less coverage.

  2. Even when you have a big budget, you can't just shoot everything.

  4. It's kind of dangerous to cut in the camera, but that's the only way I know how to direct.

  5. As far as pacing the shoot is concerned, I know when I've got it. I don't think there's any reason to take ten takes unless you need them.

  7. I got my dailies every day, although I couldn't always look at them because I was usually preparing for the next day's shoot, both as an actress and as the director.

  8. It goes back to a style of moviemaking I remember seeing as a child, in movies like The Man With The Golden Arm, which I think was shot all on a sound stage.

  12. The clothes back in those days were made so much better than clothes are today. They actually took time to make clothes to fit a woman's body. Today they make clothes that fit sizes, so it stretches to fit this and that.

  14. Michael Ralph brilliantly plays the street prophet, a West Indian who foreshadows the Harlem riot.

  15. You have to examine a scene on the page first. Then you get into the basics of acting: Who are you? Who are you talking to? How do you feel about that person?
