In this post, you will find great Shot Quotes from famous people, such as Neil MacGregor, Cindy Gallop, Alexis Arguello, Austin Mahone, Jimmy Page. You can learn and implement many lessons from these quotes.
My type of basketball is about how to create space, how to maneuver, how to get your shot off.
Life is the most excitingopportunity we have. But we have one shot. You graduate from collegeonce, and that’s it. You’re going out of that nest. And you have to find that courage that’s deep, deep, deep in there. Every step of the way.
Microsoft Research has a thing called the Sense Cam that, as you walk around, it’s taking photos all the time. And the software will filter and find the ones that are interesting without having to think, ‘Let’s get out the camera and get that shot.’ You just have that, and software helps you pick what you want.
‘Con Air’ was kind of a turning point for me, in my mind. I never shot anybody in that movie – I never did anything bad – because there were so many bad guys in that movie. I said, ‘The hell with this, I’m just gonna be a lovable guy.’ I’m like Steve McQueen in ‘The Great Escape.’
Do your best, one shot at a time and then move on. Remember that golf is just a game.
Then we tried to come up with ideas for the sketches, and then, when we actually shot the movie, we really just sat down – never previewed the movie – we just really winged it.
I love roller coasters that make my stomachdrop. One ride in Las Vegas, the Big Shot, straps you into a row of seats and catapults you into the air from the top of the Stratosphere Tower – then plummets back down. I ride it over and over; it’s exhilarating.
I was born in Chicago, but I was raised in a town called Jackson, Tennessee. And a lot of these changes that were necessary and talked about it as important have been made, like, people go to school where they want to go. They work for equalpay, they work for – they can go school and have an equal shot at a job.
Do I want to tackle a 230-pound guy who’s running like a deer? Heavens no, no one in their right mind would. But there is something that drives me and compels me to stick my head in there and give it my best shot.
This golf course, you miss a shot a little bit off-line, it’s going to bite you.
In the NBA, there’s always a guy who is only around because he can jump. He doesn’t have a clue about the fundamentals. I learn more from the WNBA. They know how to dribble, how to pivot, how to use the shot fake.
You only get one shot at life, one life to live, make the most out of it put as many smiles as you can on people’s faces, help as many people as you can, get you some paper. Live life, you and your folks.
‘Red Knot‘ is a film that I shot in Antarctica almost three years ago on a boat. It was a film that was improvised and it had very interesting circumstances while making the film, obviously. We were on a small boat bobbing around in Antarctica. It was a really remarkable experience.
You don’t really know how your film is going to turn out, but you can give it your best shot and hope the audienceloves it. This has been my approach right from the beginning, and it’s helped me a lot in my journey. All you can do is give the film your everything.
I’ve buried six GuardianAngels who have been shot and killed in the line of duty. I was stalked myself, had a gunman go pow, pow, pow, pow, pow, pow, five hollow point bullets, God save me. What do you think this is? This isn’t Zimmerman. But unfortunately, he’s become the face of Block Watch, Crime Watch.
Finishing a book is just like you took a child out in the back yard and shot it.
The ‘Sports Illustrated‘ cover was the last thing I shot. That week, I told my agent, ‘You know what, I really… I don’t want to be a model anymore. I really want to do movies.’ And I think he wanted to wring my neck at the moment.
I don’t have one role that I want to play. I guess… I want to be a producer. I want to be an activist. I want to be proactive in bringing about work for men, women, boys, girls, everybody who is good at what they do and deserve a shot at it.
In an interview with a journalist, you look petty taking the pot shot but in a slick ad you can really do damage – including unfair damage – from afar. It is not that much different than waging a war by a drone than by hand-to-hand combat.
People think hard sparring will get you sharp. And you do get sharp in the gym. But anytime I’ve trained that way, I’ve actually been a little bit flatter in the fight. And the knockout shot hasn’t come. It’s almost because my training has been too hard.
I’ll take a shot of vodka if I want it to be raspy… I tell whoever‘s in the studio to get boilinghot water, like super boiling, that they’re afraid to give it to me. I put it exactly on the back of my tongue to shock my body. That cleans it up.
I’ve always been known as a purescorer, and I’ve always said if I just sat outside and shot 3s and just really focused on that – coming off of screens and spot-up 3s – and shot six or seven 3s a game, I would probably be more known as one of the greatest shooters in NBA history.
We did ‘The Conversation’ on the Zeusnetwork because we already are on TV and we felt like us being our own therapists could work. We tried it. We just gave it a shot since we already on blast and everybody creating their own stories about what they see. Just tried to give it a shot. Did it help? I don’t know.
To be honest I don’t watch the show, I don’t watch any TV, so I have no idea what the show is about. I go to Hawaii, shot my scenes and script and ‘Ciao.’ I’m not a ‘Lost’ fanatic and it’s a disappointment for thousands people and friends that are dying to know what will happen. They know more than me.
I can work every day of the year. TV is easy. My call’s at 8:30 a.m. I’d like to break out of the comedy thing and take a shot at something serious like theater. The off-season allows me to do movies, but I’m not tired of TV yet. There’s nothing like it. I’ve got the best of both worlds.
‘La Notte’ is my favorite of the Antonioni pictures and my favorite work of the master cinematographer Gianni di Venanzo, who also shot ‘8 1/2’ for Fellini.
I was the female lead in a romantic comedy. It’s a little indie film that we shot in China called ‘America Town,’ starring Daniel Henney and Bill Paxton. I actually had to speakChinese in the film. It was funny because I found out I was doing the film and then a week later, I was in Shanghai.
I’m never going to be a flat-line guy. My heart is going to be on my sleeve with every shot.
People think modeling’s mindless, that you just stand there and pose, but it doesn’t have to be that way. I like to have a lot of input. I know how to wear a dress, whether it should be shot with me standing or sitting.
Chad was in the right spot. He got a little aggressive with the third shot there. He probably didn’t want that putt he had there for the par. And you don’t want to put it back there where Casey and Sergio did because you have 20 feet of break there.
It’s funny how all of this has worked out – I wasn’t popular in high school, but now every drunken guy in the UnitedStateswants to be my pal. They all want to buy me a shot, and pretty soon I’m throwing up.
One of the things that really got to me was talking to parents who had been burned out of their villages, had family members killed, and then when men showed up at the wells to get water, they were shot.
Ninetypercent of the coaches in the NBA are guards, and there aren’t very many big men people coaching, I happen to be one of them and when I coached, everybody on my team, including the guards, had a hook shot, so that it was their bail out shot.
I also want to try acting – give it a shot – maybe take some lessons, I think that could be fun. I feel like that could even help me with modeling, because in a way you have to act.
So there is going to be that balance of understanding how to get the best out of the car that day, whether it’s 15th or even if I have a shot at a top 10, protecting that car so we can bring it back when we have to.
What strikes me is that ‘XIII’ looks like a movie. The shot making is movie-like, which is kind of fun – the kind of playful action movie shot making is pretty, is pretty good. What’s also great about this game is its style and interesting story-line.
Watching yourself on screen is always a little weird, but I didn’t cringe when I saw myself on ‘The Hour.’ It actually exceeded my expectations; every shot looks like a vintage postcard and even my most brutally honest friends have said they think it’s good.
Many interviewers when they come to talk to me, think they’re being progressive by not mentioning in their stories any longer that I’m black. I tell them, ‘Don’t stop now. If I shot somebody you’d mention it.’
When I write a goal down – and I truly write them down – it becomes a part of me. That’s a contract that I sign with myself to say, ‘I don’t care what happens – I’m going to stay on this path. I’m going to try and see this through; I’m going to give it my best shot, my best effort.’
I think some people think I’m, like, anti-label, and I’m not. I just wanted to sign a deal when the time was right. I’m anti being shot out of a rocket when you’re not ready and the songs and image aren’t there.
I have equal parts film and digital cameras in my collection. I think that there are ways to Photoshop photos so that they look like you shot them on film, but is that as rewarding? It just depends on the person.
I’m not a model, I’m an artist. In one of my videos, I’m doing this shot of me with no make-up on where I’ve just woken up, and I don’t think a lot of people would be comfortable enough to do that. But that’s the way I look. This is who I am. Let’s enjoy it. Let’s just live life to the full while we’re all here.
First of all, in the old days, if you wanted to show someone getting shot on film, all you could do was place an effect in the original take. And if you wanted to brighten somebody’s face and leave the rest of the room dark, that was a very expensive process.
When the script was written, it was sent to me with asterisks marking where he felt a song would be appropriate. Before the film was shot, the score was written. I made a demo of it, so they lived with the music as they were making the film.
I did ‘Nobody Walks‘ right after ‘Dredd.’ Well, actually, I got off the plane from Capetown where we shot ‘Dredd’ and tested for ‘Being Flynn’ that same day. Then I came out to L.A. to make this film right after that so it was all very back to back.
My grandmother was an actress too. In the thirties and forties she was under contract with UniversalStudios. Crazy credits, lots of them. My dad was also under contract with Universal Studios. And my first film was shot on the same stage they both worked on at Universal.
What happens so often as an actor is that you retain the information about the scenes that you yourself shot and you obsess over certain scenes that you found the most challenging or interesting. The rest of the film kind of falls away in your memory or it fades a little bit.
I’ve had jobs that allow me the flexibility to achieve work-life balance, to be there when one of the kids sinks a jump shot or for the parent-teacher meetings. I can move tasks around. If I don’t get something done at the office at 4:30 in the afternoon, I can go back to it at 10:00 in the evening.
In uniform, I had to make judgments about the best course of action in combat when the only choices were ‘bad’ or ‘worse.’ As a member of the media, I only had to decide how to get the best ‘shot’ – preferably without getting shot.
I don’t think any studio – it was a long shot at the time – but I don’t think any studio in a million years would make ‘Thelma and Louise’ right now. But there’s so many other kinds of movies they won’t make right now.
In MMA it’s a lot less intimidating because it’s not like you get one shot at a title every four years. You get a title shot every couple of months… With the Olympics, you don’t always have this, so there is so much more pressureinvolved.
Most of my images have been done in-studio, under very controlledlightingconditions. There have been a few that have been shot in nature, but even then they were shot almost exclusively at night, and again, under controlled lighting conditions.
When 9/11 happened, I was like, ‘I gotta do something.’ I went and talked to the recruiters, and I found out about the Special Forces 18X program. They take qualified people off the street, and they give them a shot at Special Forces. I was like, ‘So I could go try out for Special Forces?’
I don’t believe in hitting a bad shot and then insisting it’s no big deal. No, you just messed up, so react. I’m not saying you need to throw your club. I mean, take 10 seconds to get angry at yourself, but then start over.
Any actor working a long time should know how a shot is set up, where to place themselves, how to handle the lines. I’m a member of the crew, like the best boy, the electrician. What I’m good at is making eyes at the camera.
We had the guys from X Men 2 do the cameras. They had a 360 camera that would go from one car, up in the air and over to another car in a continuous shot while the film was still rolling, going 90 mph.
Growing up in Texas and Oklahoma, Ben Johnson was more famous than John Wayne to some of us. I knew him. I worked with him on a low budget film years ago, and we’d sit around at night while waiting for a shot.
Think about the deflections. The offense can’t score every play. They’re just trying to get a good shot. If I can deflect a pass, even if it doesn’t cause a turnover, it will throw their timing off half-a-second. That half-a-second might mess up their shot.
I don’t worry about the last shot or the next shot. I concentrate. Every shot gets a cleanslate. And when a shot is over, I wipe it out absolutely. Tell a joke or something. If you worry about how you looked, how well you did, you’ll go insane.
There’s always been a lot of pressure and tension on the line. If ‘Pi’ didn’t work out, I have no idea what my career would be. I don’t think I would have gotten another shot at it. If ‘Requiem for a Dream’ didn’t work out, they would have called me a ‘one-hit wonder with a sophomoreslump‘.
The difference between a regular camera and a 3D camera, for an actor, is really no different except that the turn-arounds are longer. It takes a lot longer to set up a shot because the cinematographer is really trying to set up a whole world, so it can’t be more intricate and more beautiful to the viewers, in 3D.
I think I’m one of those guys who was sort of always in comedy. I thought of myself – and other people seemed to think of me – as funny from a very young age. I was a very young comedy nerd and I even did sketch comedy in high school and college. I wrote and shot sketches on video and acted in them.
It’s incredible, but I think a lot of people it shot over their heads ’cause they’re used to just getting images and messing around with them, and for us to do something quite so ‘designed‘ was a bit of a shock.
For this game, we shot it just like it as if it was a film so there wasn’t that much different from doing a film other than some technical things for the costume that had to be done so they could transfer the footage later and make it look animated.
Nothing in life is so exhilarating as to be shot at without result.
When we shot ‘The Lord of the Rings,’ we had special permission to film in wild areas of New Zealand that could be accessed only by helicopter. They would drop us off and we would work all day, and they’d pick us up and take us out again.
The reason we shot it was that the script was geared to Las Vegas and it was something commercial that we wanted to have in the can in caseButterfly was a success and we needed a follow-up.
I grew up in MammothLakes, and they shot an episode up there, and I was hanging around when I was on the ski team. I was very, very involved in athletics, so I didn’t watch a lot of TV, but I definitely watched a lot of ‘90210.’
My dad moved to London in his early 20s and didn’t really go back. So the irony is I’ve spent lots and lots of time in Ireland, but not with my dad. I’ve shot films in Belfast, where he’s from. And I’ve shot in Dun Laoghaire. Which is great. And I’ve shot in Dublin.
I’d rather grind slow because when it land in my lap and when I get it, it’s going to last longer than just shooting straight to the top and then the plane crashing because I done shot up too fast. I’d rather grind, figure the steps out and stay up there.
In a normal movie, the director controls what you look at. The shots don’t last very long because you’re getting the audience to look at specific things. An IMAX shot, on the other hand, can be twenty or thirty seconds long.
I don’t study films particularly. I plan to direct, but I’m not watching film – I watch the entire film to see how the story goes, but I don’t say, ‘Oh, so he does a slow pan here, or he pulls here, watch the crane shot, or look at the composition,’ because it’s got to be my eye.
In the the late seventies and early eighties, I played background roles in thirty movies… Woody Allen movies, Scorsese films, you name it. Whatever was being shot in New York, I was doing stand-in and background work because I wanted to be close to the camera; I wanted to see what was going on.
The shot of Kapil Dev kissing the World Cup and hordes of Indian fans all over at Lord’s is etched in my memory. Every Indian is proud of that victory, and every Indian player who has played the World Cup after that ’83 win wants to bring the Cup home.
I don’t get angry very often, but there have been times when I have been frustrated with myself, maybe after playing a bad shot, after getting out, I have done some damage to some equipment of mine. Once or twice in the course of 20 years – I think you can allow me that at least.
Mike and Heather and I rapped once or twice in New York and then we all wound up on a train together on the way out to Maryland. I think it was about a month and a half from the time we got cast until the time we shot the thing.
I have done everything I have ever wanted to do. I have swum with tiger sharks, been charged by lions and elephants. I have been shot three times, chased by crocodiles and, God be praised, I’ve made enough money that I can continue to do all the things I want to for as long as I am able.
The goal is to have to do the shot again because the camera guy shook a little bit as he was laughing. Without that happening, I’m not happy because there’s nothing better for me than a world that everybody’s just trying to make each other laugh.
‘The Restraint of Beasts‘ is a painful subject. We’d shot 60% of the film when I had to stop. The material looks great, like nothing I’ve ever done or even seen before. It could have been really great, definitely original.
I was watching Monster‘s Ball, which is a fabulous movie. It’s just a little gem: beautifully shot, and shot in a way I never would have done. It made me feel very old, really, because it wasn’t eccentric for its own sake, it was just very original.
I’ve been in crisissituations, I’ve been down, I’ve been hurt, I’ve been behind on the scorecards, and I’ve had to pull that shot out to knock somebody out. I’ve been in all kinds of situations and still come out on top.
The ‘Work Hard, Play Hard’ video shows how much a part of music the fans can really be. With the help of SanDisk, we were able to create the first-ever music video to be made using fan videos shot only from their mobile phones.
I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.
It’s sad that women characters have lost so much ground in popular movies. Didn’t ‘Thelma and Louise’ prove that women want to see women doing things on film? Thelma and Louise were in a classic car; they were being chased by cops; they shot up a truck – and women loved it.
I got a bad conductdischarge, was at home for a few months in late ’99, and basically said, ‘Dad, I want to give wrestling a shot. I sure as hell don’t wanna go to college, and the Marine Corps wasn’t for me. And I need to make some money, so let’s see if I can do it.’
I probably have about four or five cups of coffee a day. I make myself an espresso macchiato when I wake, which is a shot of espresso and just a dollop of steamed milk. Then, if I’m going to do some work at home, I would make myself a Frenchpress. It’s the best way to make conventional coffee.
In our briefnational history we have shot four of our presidents, worried five of them to death, impeached one and hounded another out of office. And when all else fails, we hold an election and assassinate their character.
What I love about movies is, no matter how many people are involved or how complicated the process is, at the end of the day, it’s just what’s inside of that frame. It’s going to be people sitting in a movie theater watching one shot at a time. And that’s my focus.
There are two things that give me perfect happiness – doing the perfect shot and travelling. I get stressed, really stressed by the fact that there is just so much to see and I am not going to live long enough to visit all the places I want to.
You never hear about a pitbull doing anything good in the media. And they have a stigma to them… and, in many ways, pit bulls are like young African-American males. Whenever you see us in the news, it’s for getting shot and killed or shooting and killing somebody – for being a stereotype.
I don’t know why I feel the need to try and do everything. But I kind of have this mentality that you live once, and I have a lot of things that I want to do and there’s a lot of things that I want to try. So I have to at least give it a shot before I don’t try at all or like, give up on things.
I like the sound of laughter. I was the guy in the group of friends that would always make the friends laugh. And everyone was like, ‘You should do stand up,’ so I gave it a shot, and ta-da! They were right.
I was in Milan, and somebody gave me a Trussardi diary, and I thought ‘Genius.’ Inside I put the Polaroids, how much film I shot, who I shot with. This way, for billing later on, I had all the information.
As far as I know, you only get one shot at this life. It only goes round once and time is precious. When I’m not working, you’d better spend that time with someone important.
It was a fine cast and lots of fun to make, but they did the damn thing on the cheap. The backdrops had holes in them, and it was shot on the worst film stock.
I won the Oscar for ‘Raging Bull’ for those fight sequences. If you look at those fight sequences, those were so incredibly storyboarded and shot in an incredible way – that is the conception a good director has to bring.
But ‘Hey Dude‘ was shot in Arizona, and that took me to the West Coast. We did 65 episodes. It was not a show that a ton of people saw, so it was like doing acting classes and getting paid for it. At that point I had the acting bug. So I went to L.A. to give it a try and never left.
It’s very different working with Vetrimaaran. If he’s happy with your shot, all he will tell you is, ‘Good job. Go do what you have to next.’
We’ve had drive-by shootings. I’ve been spat on, slapped, shot at. One guy tried to stab me with a brokenbeerbottle. But the way we look at it, if people do the worst they can, we’ll still wake up in glory.
I had an unbelievable experience on ’24’. We shot 198 episodes, and I was as excited about shooting the 198th as I was the first.
If you film a scene in a wide shot, especially a disturbing, distressing moment, I do feel like that helps you feel as though you’re the room with these people, instead of cutting it up and getting close – which you wouldn’t be doing if you were actually in a room with these people.
When I was a kid, award shows were super-interesting for me. But when I started making music, it was kind of hard to watch because I believed in what I was doing and yet knew I didn’t really have a shot.
When I was 7, my dad asked his friend to teach me. I played my first tournamentcompetition when I was 8. I remember I shot around 125.
‘Blacks were too scared to do anything, but they came out to greetJames Meredith’: That would have been the story in the evening news if I hadn’t gotten myself shot. I got shot, and that allowed the movementprotest thing to take over then and do their thing.
I took acting classes in college, and once I graduated, I decided to give acting a shot when I couldn’t really think of anything else to do. It took me a couple of years to get an agent, and my first big break was The Fanelli Boys, which was a sitcom on NBC. Then I did a few television movies.
Nothing was planned in my career. I just went with the flow and took everything that came to me. Sellingpotatochips was obvious, as it was a family business. When friends suggested I should try theatre, I gave it a shot. Then I did a lot of advertisements, and then movies happened.
I checked myself out in that funeral parlour scene. I saw myself laughing, because there was a shot of Ed and I together and Mary was right in back of us. My head turned from the camera and I saw myself laughing, because Mary was absolutely brilliant in that thing.
I love working in television, and I’ve been thrilled to be a part of so many wonderful shows. I worked with LadyGaga on ‘Gossip Girl,’ and the brilliant Felicity Huffman on ‘Desperate Housewives,’ but I think my favorite TV job so far was the pilot I shot for the CW Network this year called ‘Joey Dakota.’
You can do a movie and hope it may be great, but until you have seen it, you don’t know. I loved ‘Rampart.’ I love that one called ‘The Hi-Low Country’ that Steven Frears shot.
I got ‘Munich‘ after I had done ‘In Treatment’ in Israel, which was very successful. But, when I actually shot it, nobody knew it was going to be sold all over the world and be so successful.
I have had an experience which might perhaps be described as being shot down. At the same time, I call shot down only when one falls down. Today I got into trouble but I escaped with a whole skin.
Manfred von Richthofen
The important thing to note is that it is not important whether Malala was shot or not – Malala is not asking for personal favors or support. She is asking for support with girls’ education and women’s rights. So don’t support Malala, support her campaign for girls’ education and women’s rights.
I had great faith in Irish actors, that they’d be hip to the whole theatre thing, and they are. I had no illusions of coming over here as some kind of big shot. It’s been a learning experience for me too.
