If you have a history of losing interest in the final 20% of projects you’re responsible for, trading that interest for the thrill of the next new thing, it’s time to work on your ability to delay gratification.

2. Art of the iMax Sound.


4. 88 Cinematographer Share The Best Professional Advice They’ve Ever Received.

1) Learn how to listen; 2) Choose one strong idea per film; and 3) Really understand your motivations, why you do something and not something else, and the direction you take in your work.

5. Kris Tapley of Hitfix interviews Thelma Schoonmaker.

 Marty’s student films were — right away I saw that he was someone exceptional at it. And so we all banded together, started making documentaries for PBS and ‘The Merv Griffin Show’ and things like that, and we’re helping Marty finish his first feature film, which was ‘Who’s That Knocking.’ And he taught me how to edit. I knew nothing about editing — nothing. He taught me everything I know. Because of that and his wonderful high standards, my values are his values, so we worked really wonderfully together in a collaboration. We don’t fight.

6. The Lobotomy Files on The Wall Street Journal.
