Thoughts on casting


Audience Remembers the Characters, Not the Camera Work

"The two most important elements of a movie are the story and the acting. I’ve already hit you over the head many times on the importance of developing the right idea, the process, and that writing is rewriting. So you’re all aware that everything begins with story. What happens when you have a great script and bad acting? Right, you have a bad film because untalented actors will kill good writing. I’ll take a good story with great acting over a great story with bad acting. Good acting can make good writing seem great. So that’s why I’m saying out of the big three, casting is the most critical."
