There is something about the Roger Corman philosophy I have always found inspirational. Do it fast, do it cheap, find good people others have overlooked and show them how to use their wings. The results may not always be classic, but they will always be interesting.

RIP to a true original.

It's kind of awe-inspiring to look at the list of people who all remember the moment Roger Corman took a chance on them as their big break.

Do that in your own life, if you can. Be someone's big break. They will never forget it.

I remember watching a John Sayles movie called "Men With Guns" as a teenager, back when IFC really spotlighted independent films, then looked into how Sayles got his start..."Pihanha", funded by Corman
