‘Meshes of the Afternoon’ (1943)

“Instead of envying the script and dialogue writers, the trained actors, the elaborate staffs and sets, the enormous production budgets of the profession film, the amateur should make use of the one great advantage which all professionals envy him, namely, freedom—both artistic and physical… The most important part of your equipment is yourself: your mobile body, your imaginative mind, and your freedom to use both. Make sure you do use them.” –Maya Deren
