I hope they get something of interest out of it, but I'd rather they all hate it and I like it, instead of vice versa... I make films to please myself first, and if the audience likes them, all the better.
I really want younger audience members to see kids in their early 20's playing Frank's music and to be inspired to take things to a higher level themselves.
There's still a 1950s view of cinema, that there's one audience and they all want to see the same thing.
Being black, I'm involved in the reparations movement. It's focused toward the African-American audience. We could begin to heal.
Intimacy comes from being yourself on the stage and making the audience feel, without trying, that you're sittin' down there with 'em, playing, and that can happen in a big hall, if you have a good audience that want to listen.
Wet Hot American Summer so far is a financial disappointment and money was lost on it. But perhaps it will find its audience in video, cable, etc, maybe over the course of years.
Cary Grant was wonderful to work with on stage. He would move downstage, so that as he looked at me the audience had to look at me, too. He knew a lot about the theater and how to move around. He was very secure.
I'm facing upstage, with my back to the audience, and the spotlight comes up on my back as I start singing.
I have no experience performing that music live in front of an audience. So that remains to be seen. I'm very excited to see what that's going to be like.

The wonderful thing about Food for Thought is that it lets you keep your hand in theater and be in front of a live audience without a commitment of six months, or even three months.
It appeared as if I had invited the audience into the water with me, and it conveyed the sensation that being in there was absolutely delicious.
We're telling a story. And the demands of that are different from the demands of a documentary. The audience must believe in order to keep faith in the story.
I quickly discovered that I wrote best when I had an audience to read out loud to soon after the completion of my latest, hottest pages.
I've always wanted to be a real universal artist, one that every type of audience could relate to.
The reason that conservative talk radio works is because there is an audience for it.
Despite being able to demonstrate a very large audience, major advertisers at first wouldn't touch Limbaugh.
We're not getting paid. We have these great musicians with us and it gives us a real charge. And the audience gives us a charge, because they keep it interesting all the time.
In fact, it is amazing how much European films - Italian, French, German and English - have recovered a certain territory of the audience in their countries over the last few years.
If I live to be 90, and I'm planning to, I'll always love performing for a live audience.
I always worried I'd forget my lines or say the wrong words or the audience would laugh in the wrong places.
