I would like to call this new age of cinema the age of camera-stylo (camera-pen)[…] to become a means of writing just as flexible and subtle as written language.
I wish I had a camera that can move freely in space.[...]
that at any moment can go anywhere, at any speed.
The play of pure movement […], vigorous and abundant. All this we shall be able to create when the camera has at last has been dematerialized”. Only with this essential instrument shall we be able to realize new possibilities. [...]The camera is the director's sketching pencil. It should be as mobile as possible to catch every passing mood.
The camera must be equally as ready to move as to remain still. […] The camera has a human quality it is a projection of hand and eye, almost a living part of the operator, instantly in tune with his awareness.
