How Creatives Work: Woody Allen

Woody Allen loves the writing process. He says he can get up in the morning and go write in his room. He is a workaholic. As soon as he has finished a script he cannot relax until he begins working on the next one.  He doesn’t believe in taking any time off, averaging one movie every year or so. As a director, comedian, screenwriter of his own films, playwright, writer of New Yorker articles, and even a clarinetist in a jazz band, he has made waves in every creative direction he has delved into. His films have incredible range, going from the broadest of comedies to the most serious of dramas and every shade in between.

Roosevelt to Look magazine for $25, and a couple months later became the youngest photographer ever hired by the magazine. Kubrick’s career as a photojournalist gives us another look into the man who directed some of the greatest movies ever put onto film. A keen eye for light and shadow drape his subjects under a veil that is strictly characteristic of Kubrick and his control over the camera
