Lo spot di Apple “Make a film with iPad” contiene un breve stralcio del discorso di inizio anno che Martin Scorsese ha tenuto alla NYU Tisch School nel 2014.
È lungo, ma fatevi il favore e ascoltatelo: è la summa dell’ispirazione di un artista che ho sempre amato e che per il cinema ha fatto molto.
«You can’t do your work according to other people’s values. I’m not talking about “Following your dream” either. I never liked the inspirational value of that phrase. Besides being sentimental, it’s beside the point. Dreaming is a way of trivializing the process. The obsession that carries you through the failure as well as the successes. If you’re dreaming, your sleeping and it’s important and imperative to always be awake to your feelings, your possibilities, your ambitions. But you also know this, for your work, for your passion, every day is a re-dedication. Painters, dancers, actors, writers, filmmakers, it’s the same for all of you. All of us. Every step is a first step; every brush stroke is a test, every scene is a lesson, every shot is a school. So let the learning continue» — Martin Scorsese
