Making films is assembling dreams, nightmares, fears and laughs. You can play it all back and make your heart stop.– Michael Heath
Well apart from television, I mean there’s really no feature filmmaking in New Zealand. I’m sure that a lot of people given the opportunity would come up with something.– Michael Heath, speaking just before the dawn of another age (1975)
I am just accustomed to catastrophes ... I said I will have a weapon on me, and the first man who touches me, will drop dead with me. And so about 50 - 60 soldiers and policemen stood and watched, and no one dared to touch me and we filmed the scene. So that’s how we made our films.– Werner Herzog, on making Signs of Life during a military coup in Greece
