reality disappears when there is control

Like a football coach, you have to do all your work before the game, know their abilities and know how they will do. Put them in the right position and when the game begins you can sit back, watch and enjoy. I think directors who jump in the middle of the scene don’t know their job. I believe a good director is the one whose job is finished when filming starts and just gives the cut at the end”
excerpt Cinematic Lessons from Abbas Kiarostami

En eso nos parecemos a los entrenadores de football, que hacen todo el trabajo antes del partido. Tenemos que conocer las habilidades y reacciones de los actores y actrices con antelación y dejarlos hacer durante el rodaje. Ponerlos en la posición correcta y cuando comienza la filmación, sentarnos a mirar y disfrutar. Creo que los directores que salten en medio de un rodaje no conocen su trabajo.”
