    This is one of the best DP 30′s ever. This guy is awesome on so many levels. Hope he finally wins his Oscar as he’s tragically over-due. So curious about Pain & Gain…

    David, as always, your DP30′s with post folks (especially sound) are smart and really informative. Great questions! Greg seemed genuinely happy to talk about his craft.

  3. Love Greg. Really think this might be his year.

    Everyone on goldderby reckons it’ll be Les Mis. Hope they’re wrong.

“The city to me is the only possible vehicle we have to measure human achievement. We’re an urban species now. If you look at Karachi or Mexico City or Hong Kong or London or New York or Yonkers or Baltimore or any of these other places, the pastoral is now a part of human history. We’re either going to figure out how to live together in these increasingly crowded, increasingly multi-cultural population centers or we’re not. We’re either going to get great at this or we’re going to fail as a species.”
~ David Simon

“I wondered how different it would be to write a novel and it’s totally different. It’s very internal. The weird thing about it is that I found that novel-writing was much more like directing than it is like screenwriting. You’re casting it, you’re lighting it, you’re doing the costumes, you’re doing the locations, you’re doing it all yourself as a director would. In screenwriting, you don’t do that stuff. You don’t describe the face of the actor or the character when you’re writing a screenplay because Tom Cruise is going to do it and he doesn’t look like that, whereas in the novel to describe what he is is what he is. The actual act of writing, just like shooting on a set, is a slow slog. It’s going to work every day.”
