"Most of us can design a smashing set that will make the audience gasp and stop the story right in the middle. Occasionally, if you have the good fortune to have a Star Wars or a film that gives you a chance to do some extraordinary thing, fine. But most of the time you are dealing with real people and real situations… There is one thing that has always interested me… the search for what I call ‘dramatic truth.’ This has nothing to do with photographic truth… Any of you who have ever photographed anything know what a liar the camera can be. It is up to us to make the truth, and the truth can be very, very far from reality."
— Robert Boyle
