BERESFORD, BRUCE

There were movies that always made me want to be a director. You see brilliant scenes and the way the emotions were handled. I thought, I’d really like to do that.

With a film, I do my best to understand the author’s intentions and try to bring the characters to life.

When the music and the characters are flawlessly synchronized, the opera develops an emotional force that movies and plays cannot match.

I love strange choices. I’m always interested in people who depart from what is expected of them and go into new territory.

If I had my way, if I was lucky enough, if I could be on the brink of my entire life – that great sense of expectation and excitement without the disappointment – that would be the perfect state.

BROWN, BRYAN

When you live in a place, you are not just taking from it, you are contributing to it. In America I would never be able to make myself a person who could contribute. I wasn’t interested in that society; I was interested in this society.

I just love quality. Quality can be so broad. It’s available to all of us. And it’s something to do with service.
