Luc Besson
 
Luc Besson. You might not know him, but you know of his work.

I thought the history behind how he made some of his great movies was fascinating. I think many of us at one point in our lives sit there and try to think, what are we going to do with our lives? What do we like to do? What skills do we have? It's fascinating to see how Luc thought that too and when he sat for a moment to think about it, he came up with something that really seemed to fit well with him.

When you sit there and think of what you would like to do and what you are good at, what do you come up with?

"Out of boredom, he started to write stories, including the backdrop to what would later become one of his most popular movies, The Fifth Element. Besson directed and co-wrote the screenplay of this Sci-Fi thriller"

From an interview -
Quote:

Originally I wanted to be a diver and take care of dolphins, but then I had an accident and couldn't dive anymore. I was 17 and I wondered what I was going to do. You know sometimes you're in a position of risk and you feel that you can turn good or bad, or you can do all kinds of stupid things? You're 17. So I tried to concentrate on what I could do.

So I took a piece of paper and on the left I put everything I could do, or had skills for, and all the things I couldn't do. The first line was shorter and I could see that I loved writing, I loved images, I was taking a lot of pictures. So I thought maybe movies would be good. But I thought that to really know I should go to a set. And a friend of mine knew a guy whose brother was a third assistant on a short film. It's true.

So, I said: "OK, let's go on the set." So I went on the set and the first thing that I remember is that there was this big truck outside and then I saw the cables which were like, umbilical, and you found the set by following the cables and it was like..."wow". And then you arrived in a room and it was full of light and I fell in love. I was living 60km from Paris in a small city. The day after I went back to see my mum and told her that I was going to make films and stop school and 'bye. And I did it! Very soon after I made a short film and it was very, very bad. I wanted to prove that I could do something, so I made a short film. That was in fact my main concern, to be able to show that I could do one.
