Daniel Zarick on Stanley Kubrick’s insistence on doing his own handheld camera work:
Many people want to become the director, the boss, the one who gets to sit back and tell everybody else what to do. Forget that. Let us be the ones who help execute the vision while also setting the vision.
There are probably a thousand stories in which Kubrick insisted something be done in a way that was inconvenient or even inconceivable. His work, obviously, speaks for itself.
