Quentin Tarantino has once more stated that he intends to only make ten films in his lifetime. This means the director is just two movies away from retiring from his film directing career.
Tarantino spoke at Adobe Max, a creativity conference held by the software company inside the San Diego Convention Center.
Drop the mic. Boom. Tell everybody, ‘Match that s**t,’ he said and was greeted with a big applause.
The 53-year-old director is currently working on a crime drama set in 1930s Australia which he had previously described as a “Bonnie and Clyde-esque” tale.
He shared how music is involved in his creative process. With each new script he makes a tour through his personal record collection, which is in room that looks like a vintage record store.
So much of [the movie’s language] revolves around a sound or a song. Before I’ve started, I’m seriously thinking about the music. I’m listening to a track and picturing everyone at the Cannes Palais just loving it.
Ann Lewnes, CMO of Adobe, that conducted Thursday’s interview, asked Quentin Tarantino how he personally defines success.
Hopefully, the way I define success when I finish my career is that I’m considered one of the greatest filmmakers that ever lived. And, going further, a great artist, not just filmmaker.
On another occasion the director said that after he is done with movies, he will probably be involved in theater.
