“All the films are hits before you turn the camera on. It’s only in the execution that they fail. I’ve been less than happy with the way a couple of films were edited, but it’s a director’s prerogative and you gotta go with it.”

 

Bruce Willis

“In Hitchcocks eyes the movement was dramatic, not the acting. When he wanted the audience to be moved, he moved the camera. He was a subtle human being, and he was also the best director I have ever worked with.”

 

Bruce Dern

“In silent movies, they tended to put the camera down, and everybody walked in front of it and acted, and then they all walked off. Cutting was quite infrequent.”

Bruce Beresford

“Using iPads as cameras, for example, is like taking pictures with a cafeteria tray.”

 

Brian Williams

“Having an eye patch actually makes it easier to look through a camera – I don’t have to close one eye like everyone else.”

 

Brian Selznick

“I think from an early age I was aware of how a camera can tell a story, how a movie camera can affect how the narrative is told.”

 

Brian Selznick

“The camera lies all the time; lies 24 times/second.”

 

Brian De Palma

“If I had never won a single medal, I’d still be skating in a rink somewhere. There wouldn’t be an audience or camera flashes or autograph seekers, but I’d still be skating.”

 

Brian Boitano

“The camera for an artist is just another tool. It is no more mechanical than a violin if you analyze it. Beyond the rudiments, it is up to the artist to create art, not the camera.”

 

Brett Weston

“Beyond the rudiments, it is up to the artist to create art, not the camera.”

 

Brett Weston

“I got a Super 8 camera when I was eight years old, and I just wanted to tell stories – I love telling stories.”

Brett Ratner

“I think most artists would agree, it’s one thing to be playing in front of a crowd that’s loving it, it’s another thing to add cameras, but it’s a really cool trade off to be on television.”

Brett Dennen

“When you put a camera in front of me, I’m home.”

 

Breaux Greer

“After twenty years you can begin to be sure of what camera will do.”

 

Brassai

“He [Andy warhol] went out every evening to five or six parties with a tape recorder in one pocket and a camera with extra film and batteries in the other pocket, constantly recording and photographing everyone he came across.”

 

Bob Colacello

Bo Burnham

“Louis B. Mayer came out west with $28.00, a box camera and an old lion. He built a monument to himself — the Bank of America.”

 

Bob Hope

“It rubs me the wrong way, a camera… It’s a frightening thing…Cameras make ghosts out of people.”

 

Bob Dylan

“My first concern is that when you go to a show, you should be present. It’s much more exciting to put the camera down and lose yourself in it.”

Bo Burnham

“Film has always been hard for me, I’m basically a stage actress. I never felt comfortable in front of the camera.”
