Film Set Sayings By Will Ferrell: On the set of an independent film you can tell that nobody is doing it On the set of an independent film you can tell that nobody is doing it for the money.

Film Set Sayings By Virginia Woolf: They came there regularly every evening drawn by some need. It was as if the They came there regularly every evening drawn by some need. It was as if the water floated off and set sailing thoughts which had grown stagnant on dry land, and gave to their bodies even some sort of physical relief. First, the pulse of colour flooded the bay with blue, and the heart expanded with it and the body swam, only the next instant to be checked and chilled by the prickly blackness on the ruffled waves.

"What I really want to say is, when you kiss me, all I want is to feel you and hold you in my arms.

The difficulty for him is to look and to love. If he succeeds, he loves the Real — Weil Simone

Just leave well enough alone
Eat your dirty laundry — Don Henley

That is one of the main reasons the Beatles ended. I can't speak for George, but I pretty damn well know we got fed up of being sidemen for Paul.

Film Set Sayings By Taylor Schilling: On a film set, for me, there's so much more time to process what's going On a film set, for me, there's so much more time to process what's going on than there is on a television set.

I am a bit of a control freak. — Chris Evans
Film Set Sayings By Marie Lu: Let go of me," I choke out, clawing blindly at Teren. The sharp tang of Let go of me," I choke out, clawing blindly at Teren.

We are getting closer.
"I wish I could," Teren spits, dripping venom. "There's nothing I'd like to see more than you in the Underworld, Adelina."
His words spark my fury. He never intended to finish this journey with you. Teren grips my arm again so hard that I scream in pain. He is pulling us both toward the ship, his face set in grim determination.
Then I hear him shout, "But I won't."
But I won't. My fury wavers, turning into bewilderment. — Marie Lu

Film Set Sayings By Emma Stone: I realize I have a lot of amazing opportunities, but I don't know how you I realize I have a lot of amazing opportunities, but I don't know how you can play a human being going through real human experiences without being able to walk down the street. If you can't live a real life, how do you play a real person? It always confuses me when actors work back-to-back-to-back with no break. If you live your life on a film set, how the hell can you relate to real people? You don't know what its like to not have people fussing over you all day, and that's not life - that's silly movies. I will always want to take breaks and I wouldn't be OK with losing that. — Emma Stone

Film Set Sayings By Ice Cube: Music is where I have the most creative freedom, but I love producing. To me, Music is where I have the most creative freedom, but I love producing.

From picking a director, sometimes picking a writer, to the actors, the wardrobe, set design, editing, music, and marketing. — Ice Cube
Film Set Sayings By Jonathan Groff: When you get to really involve yourself with a piece [script] and the other people When you get to really involve yourself with a piece [script] and the other people and you get to feel like it's a community and you're all building something together, it helps me to produce better work, I think. And there's an exhaustion that happens on a film set - an exhaustion that translates into a relaxation and helps me to live in the moment, in the performance I'm giving and what's happening around me. — Jonathan Groff
