“The things you get fired for when you’re young are the same things that you get lifetime achievement awards for when you’re old.” – Francis Ford Coppola, Alumni Speaker, C2-MTL 2012.
Beyond being an iconic filmmaker, Francis Ford Coppola is also a multi-businessman and one-of-a-kind storyteller. In the video below, Coppola describes the evolution of sound, and how he has explored and evolved with its technological advancements throughout his career, from his early “San Francisco” days until today.
Memorable quotes transcribed from the video above, as said by Francis Ford Coppola:
We used to sit around and dream about what the cinema of the future was going to be like in terms of technology.
To me, it’s more in the writing and artistic conception on what a film can be, that’s next – ready for a revolution, because the technology can pretty much, now, do anything you ask of it.
