“Photographs of people talking… bares no relation to the art of the cinema.”
That quote alone makes this clip of Hitchcock wisdom worth watching.
Will your screenplay result in “photographs of people talking”?
Or will it instead be pure cinema?
Another nice one: “Tell the story visually and let the talk be part of the atmosphere.” Hitch also responds to his being ‘canonized’ by the leaders of the French avant garde.
Expect a lot more of Hitchcock goodness on Wednesdays!

Karel Segers wrote his first produced screenplay at age 17. Today he is a story analyst with experience in acquisition, development and production. He has trained students worldwide, and worked with half a dozen Academy Award nominees. Karel speaks more European languages than you have fingers on your left hand, which he is still trying to find a use for in his hometown of Sydney, Australia. The languages, not the fingers.
