“‎If you want to write, if you want to create, you must be the most sublime fool that God ever turned out and sent rambling. You must write every single day of your life. You must read dreadful dumb books and glorious books, and let them wrestle in beautiful fights inside your head, vulgar one moment, brilliant the next. You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads. I wish you a wrestling match with your Creative Muse that will last a lifetime. I wish craziness and foolishness and madness upon you. May you live with hysteria, and out of it make fine stories — science fiction or otherwise. Which finally means, may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world.”

—   Ray Bradbury, one of the most rambling sublime fools of our time. (via thecurious)

Short film for my Motion Picture Language and Editing classes.

The diner scene I edited for class. It was tough going through all the takes, particularly when it came to choosing the right audio (no background noise: dogs barking, cars passing by, etc.) but I’m satisfied with the cut.
