“How a director is made”, by Alfonso Cuarón

What inspires Oscar-nominated directors to get a start in the industry? In a brief answer to a question posed to him on Quora, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban director Alfonso Cuarón of the critically acclaimed film Gravity fame, answers this very question.

In part of his answer, he states,

When I was a kid, my friends found me to be very annoying because while they wanted to play soldiers, I was pretending to film a movie about soldiers. I was staging them and trying to direct their actions. Later, as soon as I was able to hang on the streets by myself, I would go to the cinema at least once per day.”

We definitely think that early practice paid off! To see Cuarón’s other responses, check them out here!
