  54. “Even if you look at the ‘Paranormal Activity’ movies, at the end of the movie things get really crazy and nutty, but they all start in a very mundane situation that people can relate to, and that’s also to some degree what we tried to do in ‘Chernobyl Diaries.” ~ Oren Peli

It becomes difficult to have a friendly conversation with them.” ~ Darrel Ray

  59. “Don’t think about how your characters sound, but how they see. Watch the world through their eyes – study the extraordinary and the mundane through their particular perspective.

Thus, you will, perhaps, find yourself reaching a heightened sense of awareness completely outside the realm of mundane experience.” ~ Mina Loy
