On Directing Sensitive Scenes…

“You can yell ‘Action!’ at them, and the adrenaline goes up, the blood pressure goes up, and even if they can appear calm they are not really at optimum level. What I do is when I get the camera going, I try to do that as silently as possible. If you’re going to do a slate at the beginning, it has to be a slate person who knows how to click it very quietly. And then I just say, ‘Ok, anytime’ or ‘Go’. And at the end, it’s ‘Stop. Thank you’ or ‘That’s enough of that shit.'” -Clint Eastwood
