In David Lynch’s book: Catching the Big Fish he infers that ideas swim amongst the waters of other ideas. “If you want to catch a little fish stay in the shallow water. But if you want to catch the big fish, you’ve got to go deeper.” What Lynch is referring to, when he states you’ve got to go deeper, is the action of expanding the consciousness. He states this can be applied to life in all ways, including creativity. “There are fish for everything,” he assures. “The more your consciousness – your awareness – is expanded, the deeper you go toward this source, and the bigger the fish you can catch.”
Commercial film is made
by breaking down each part of its production
into various roles and jobs.
There is the producer,
there is the director,
and the cinematographer.
How about the screenwriter
and the the gaffer, too.
This is why they call film-making
a collaborative medium.
But this is where I struggle, because
I don’t want to be any one of those.
I don’t want to organize a crew:
I want to be alone with my camera,
writing a film with what I am filming.
