Quentin Tarantino learned a valuable lesson from Harvey Keitel in the making of Reservoir Dogs. He told Tarantino when an actor first comes in to read for a part "Don't help them out in that very first reading. Don't give them any guidance, don't tell them how you want the scene, don't tell them what you are looking for... they have the material themselves and they have come up with their own things. You will never see what was in their head the very first time unless you let them do it" This is a valuable lesson in creative thinking. Many are too quick to jump in with children or team members, and guide the discussion, or share what they think, solve the problem. When you jump in like that, without letting them have a good go.....you never see what was in their minds, what they had been thinking, where their ideas were going. Tarantino said to this day, for the past 21 years, he keeps it front of mind. Good lesson. Thanks to Mike Von for the pic.
