Quote of the day

"Both architects and directors are the head of big crews and their work is to bring a vision to the projects. We work with dozens of specialists and have to tell them how to do their work, even knowing they're much better than us at what they do. Sometimes I see a director as someone who can't act, photograph, plan, create sets or costumes, or play or compose music. The only thing you can do is ask people to do it for you."

City Of God director and qualified architect Fernando Meirelles. Working with architects every day, I understand well enough what he means on that front.
