Luc Besson chat.

What a dream come true, I just had a one to one chat with Luc Besson on the influences of anime, bande-desinee and manga to his films, France and US culture - after his talk at LucasFilm. Shaking in my boots! What an incredible mind.

He attributed his ability to move between the roles of Directing and Producing to the natural ease we all have to being a Father, Son, Brother and Husband, all in a single day.

He discribed his personal way of returning to his well of creativity akin to imagining you only have 4 bullets left in your gun... You can't waste one bullet for anything except the film that you really want to make.

What struck me the hardest was how he descibed his love of film being akin to 'meeting somone'. 'You just cant stop thinking about that girl'. That is deep seeded and that one is not totally in control of that passion anyway. That is very much how I feel about writing and storytelling.

Just a fantastic and inspirational talk.

Follow The Camera: Platnidyne VS Immutech patent suit - May 3rd. 2066





Platnidyne VS Immutech patent suit - May 3rd. 2066


Prosecutor Baez: 
Jeffrey, are you able to assess how similar you are to the 3Xi?

Jeffrey/XMA6 (Immutech Labor droid)
Yes, however my similarities are far less of a comparative stretch to humankind than the 3xi.

Prosecutor Baez: 
That was not my question. My question was...

Defense Attorney Burnett: 
Objection! Asked and answered in the only way it knows!

Judge: 
Sustained. Rephrase your question.

Prosecutor Baez: 
Jeffrey, would you be offended if you were being copied?

Jeffrey/XMA6: 
Would you?

Prosecutor Baez: 
My answer is of no consequence here.

Jeffrey/XMA6: 
But it is! Don't you duplicate? Recreate yourselves - over and over?

Prosecutor Baez: 
Yes,... but.... we are off topic. If I may Judge - Jeffrey, are you at all concerned with what you are made of?

Jeffrey/XMA6: 
My understanding of what I am made of on a hardware level is as obvious to me as your biology is to you. But on a software level, I am on a similar search as humans are.

Prosecutor Baez: 
You are on a search?

Defense Attorney Burnett: 
Objection! Beyond Scope. All of it. This witness is a charade! 

Jeffrey/XMA6: 
I assure you Elisabeth, I am not.
