Child Injury Procedure
- Do not react. at the most, maybe wince and go “ooooh”
- Go over to the child to assess panic level and severity of injury
- If they’re like, dying, remain calm, but they’re probably not.
- Look them in the eye and ask, “you okay?” they will nod. possibly all teary-eyed. then ask, “are we gonna need to cut it off?”
- The child is thrown off; if they giggle, you’re in the money.
- If they don’t, put a bandaid on and do some sympathetic patting.
- Let the sad little bug sit out for a minute, they’ll quickly get bored.
- Works every time.
With ‘Psycho,’ I was sort of angry at Hollywood trying to remake movies, because it seemed like they would rob the screenplay and forget all the other inputs, whatever else existed. For instance, in a movie like ‘Casablanca,’ they would take the script and they would actually change the script. So I said, “Why don’t you just shoot it exactly the way it is, because it’s a great movie?” This was my sort of anti-remake statement. And it wasn’t until after ‘Good Will Hunting’ that they were willing to let me do that. Universal was the company that I would go to for meetings, and every time they’d ask me what I wanted to do. The first time I said something like, “Why don’t you remake something like ‘Psycho’ without changing it?” And subsequently, after they laughed at me that time, I’d bring it up again the next year, and the next year, until finally, when ‘Good Will Hunting’ was up for awards, they wanted me to do something at Universal. And I said the Psycho-don’t-change-anything shoot, and their response was, “We think that’s a really brilliant idea.” [audience laughs] So then they were willing to do it and the ball was in my court, to decide whether I wanted to do it. Danny Elfman said the critics would kill me, which they did. But I still thought that it was worthy of experimentation, even though I was at a weird point, with the nominations and everything. —Gus Van Sant
