Hate these clowns.
Are you kidding? I am lucky to have more money in gear than my debt in bank :D
But it's actually the truth. And even if I respect the man a lot, I seriously doubt you can learn the money's worth at those classes.. NO THANKS.
It's absolutely possible, I don't know what you're talking about. I *never* watch trailers. Online it's not an issue at all, and in cinemas it means you must came in late -- but then I rarely go to cinema these days.
In any case, I hate trailers. There are basically no good ones at all. They are not made by the director but by marketing people. Overdramatized pieces of shit that mislead all while revealing way too much.
I agree that Tarantino is a distinctive director, who injected enough of his personal flavour in his films, and also acknowledge the fact that filmmaking is by large driven by tradition, and is perhaps the most collaborative form of art, therefore naturally being less original and pure than many other arts -- however, when it comes to this horrible, overused quote of "good artists copy, great artists steal", I absolutely disagree, this is a poor excuse for visionless people and completely contradicts what the artist is about, which is transforming their own experience of living into some kind of expression.. Which is of course inspired and/or influenced by other people, including artists, but is much more complex than just copying and stealing (latter even implying to take credit for someone's else work).
We should put stop to mindless repetition of this bullshit, like if the mere fact that subjectively great artist once upon the time said it makes it the universal truth and justifies template-labouring and plagiarism.
