About Tony Scott:
Anthony David was an English film director and producer.
We think of enterprise architecture as the process we use for fully describing and mapping business functionality and business requirements and relating them to information systems requirements.
Dad never understood why Ridley wanted to go to art school, and then I came along six years later and wanted to do the same thing.
It was very hard breaking into the film industry in Britain. I had been to art school, and I was painting and doing commercials. And I did some of the very first rock videos.
GM is a highly collaborative organization; we rely on a whole tier of suppliers for everything that we do.
A lot of actors talk about doing their homework, but very few of them do it.
I have a short attention span.
I make a movie because it's something that inspires me.
We don't ever want IT to be the thing that holds GM back.
We come from a tough, working class background, so we're very tight.
I thought that subtitles are boring because they're there generally to serve us with information to make you understand what people are saying in a different language.
We had a brilliant upbringing, and we never wanted for anything, even though we went through highs and lows of finances.
The true excitement comes from the actors - that gives you the true drama - and whatever I can do with the camera, that's icing on the cake.
New York is vertical - all skyscrapers.
Making a movie is like a marathon, and commercials are like sprints - they're equally satisfying, but in different ways.
I can't sit on my bum very long in a movie theater seat, and when I'm directing, I always want to move the camera or edit.
An established film director can just pick up the phone and say to a star, 'Hey, are you interested in doing a commercial?'
My stories are pretty simplistic, but the characters are always complex and always right, and that comes from the script and my research and reverse-engineering what I find in the real world.
Ridley and I talk every day. Our family is very close because we're from North England.
Mum was the matriarch and the patriarch of the family.
I'm always dictated to be what I want to do, and I have a love affair with every movie I've done, and some of them have turned out good, and some of them have turned out not so good. But regardless, the making of them, or that love affair, has always...
