Do you work for a client, for the audience, or for your own creative adventure?
No matter the situation, my motto is always "Audience First". Thus, I create things with the audience fully in mind. After all, there's no movie, no TV show, no play, without an audience. Of course, different projects sometimes attract (and exclude) more specific audiences, and that's fine, too. Also, I have a strict policy against any sort of pandering, spoon-feeding, or "dumbing-down". People don't need that kind of insulting paradigm thrown their way, and audiences of all kinds are far smarter than we often give them credit for being. In reality, I like to think of projects as being a two-way street: I expect the audience to work a little, and I promise to do my work, too. I'm really not here to push things down a one-way pipe: It's always a joint contract with the audience.
think of it like this:
There are three people important to the cinema. Actor is to cinematographer is to audience.
So I say that for a director's vision to come about their actors must connect with the cinematographer who then is in charge of taking the visual language of film and making it resinate with the audience.
I work for everyone. I make sure my Clients are happy. I love when the Audience recognizes my work and of course I get to be creative with what I do.
I work for a client or production company. I always think of the audience. I want to move more into my own creative ventures.
I work for the audience, they take the risk when they see a film or piece of theatre, they're thinking, 'I hope this will be good,' so we have to deliver! I never want them to get bored sitting there! The creative adventure is part of the journey in making it for the audience.
For a client by giving a large amount of concern on what the audience NEED, and NOT what the audience WANT
Yes. All of the above. I try to choose the films that I would want to work on when there is a choice, but you still have to make a living.
