Favorite Quotes

05:43 - "Diversity is not a new concept, and it's been happening. It's been going on for a while. What you see on the front end is a dramatic change. You're seeing a lot more faces of diversity on the screen where you didn't get five years ago." - Tim Tortora

10:19 - "I like to liken this business to throwing spaghetti at a wall and seeing what sticks. We make a lot of stuff, many different kinds of things. And when it works, it's cookie cutter. It's replicate, rinse, repeat, and do it again. Same story, different actors, slightly different twist, but it's kind of the same thing. Cookie-cutter over and over, and once in a while, you get an anomaly." - Tim Tortora

18:45 - "You have to let creatives spin out into the universe and reel them back in. They're going to give you a hundred ideas. Ninety-five of them are going to be terrible ideas. And you have to figure out which ones are the five." - Tim Tortora

19:44 - "The best movies I've worked on were the hardest, the most contentious, with the greatest amount of fight and confrontation I've ever worked on in my entire career." - Tim Tortora

22:16 - "I have worked around creatives and supported creatives my entire career in a way where I can be a part of the creation of music, movies, and television. And that, to me, has been as rewarding and fulfilling as making the content or making whatever it is we're working on." - Tim Tortora
