In life, we all learn from everyone.
Children's finger-painting came under the arts, but movies didn't.
Movies are not scripts - movies are films; they're not books, they're not the theatre.
The rules are learnt in order to be broken, but if you don't know them, then something is missing.
Years ago I had a house in Sussex, it was like Arcadia, with an old Victorian bridge, a pond and the Downs.
And later I thought, I can't think how anyone can become a director without learning the craft of cinematography.
But in marketing, the familiar is everything, and that is controlled by the studio. That is reaching its apogee now.
Marketing is a very good thing, but it shouldn't control everything. It should be the tool, not that which dictates.
You make the movie through the cinematography - it sounds quite a simple idea, but it was like a huge revelation to me.
