Masterclass: Mike Figgis

Mike Figgis & Esin Küçüktepepynar3

Last Tuesday I attended  the Masterclass by academy award nominated film director, writer and composer Mike Figgis moderated by Esin Küçüktepepınar at the Pera Museum Auditorium.

Being one of the first filmmakers to have stepped into digital filmmaking,  he discussed his thoughts and mentioned his love about digital cinema as well as sharing his experience in both U.K.  and Hollywood with us.

He also gave great tips about how to be a successful filmmaker and told interesting and amusing anecdotes about his filmmaking career.

Here are some of my favorite quotations by Mike Figgis from his masterclass:

“Bullshit is part of the filmmaking process.”

“If you have no social skills, you have to stop right now.”

“Cinema represents the perfect combination of different arts.”

“As long as the lens and the microphone is good, your film is good.”

“3 lights is a nightmare, so better to have one light. The window light is the best!”
