“Be regular and orderly in your life, so that you may be violent and original in your work.” -Gustave Flaubert
No one wants to be around a person who’s crazy, out of control, consumed by passion, narcissistic, foul-mouthed, violent, quick-triggered, arrogant, single-minded,…well, you get the drift.
But man, we do love seeing those people on stage and screen. Or reading about them in novels. At least some of the time.
Put another way…get your sh*t together in life. Have your sh*t together as a producer. That way, you can be out of control in your art.
