    Are the Twitter blog streams because DP also finds his own websites design too antiquated to conveniently use from a mobile device?

    It’s Ray trying something out. And no, it has nothing to do with the website being antiquated. Firstly, it isn’t antiquated. It just doesn’t look like every f-ing site out there with long pages of stuff that floats away into the ether like so much flotsam. Secondly, it is pretty easy to use from any mobile device. Thirdly, I just am not writing in depth here now. Ray was being generous with me and trying to initiate conversation… the only one that you (or anyone else) took up was to be a smartass.

“What Quibi trying to do is get to the next generation of film narrative. The first generation was movies, and they were principally two-hour stories that were designed to be watched in a single sitting in a movie theater [ED: After formats like the nickelodeon]. The next generation of film narrative was television, principally designed to be watched in one-hour chapters in front of a television set. I believe the third generation of film narrative will be a merging of those two ideas, which is to tell two-hour stories in chapters that are seven to ten minutes in length. We are actually doing long-form in bite-size.”

“The important thing is: what makes the audience interested in it? Of course, I don’t take on any roles that don’t interest me, or where I can’t find anything for myself in it. But I don’t like talking about that. If you go into a restaurant and you have been served an exquisite meal, you don’t need to know how the chef felt, or when he chose the vegetables on the market. I always feel a little like I would pull the rug out from under myself if I were to I speak about the background of my work. My explanations would come into conflict with the reason a movie is made in the first place — for the experience of the audience — and that, I would not want.
