Filming 'Blow Up' (1966)
Filming Blow Up (1966)

For me, from the moment when the first, still unformed, idea comes into my head until the projection of the rushes, the process of making a film constitutes a single piece of work. I mean that I cannot become interested in anything, day or night, which is not that film. Let no one imagine that this is a romantic pose—on the contrary. I become relatively more lucid, more attentive, and almost feel as if I were intelligent and more ready to understand.

—Michelangelo Antonioni
