Ace filmmaker Ridley Scott says a writer should listen to his own intuitions because if he will not do that, he cant take decisions.

“You got to rely on your intuition as a writer. Otherwise, you get a block and you’re going mmm. And intuitively you learn gradually to trust your intuition,” Scott said in a statement.

“Anything is better than no decision — my feeling as a director. Best advice I can give is go in the morning, don’t apologise for anything, and actually just say, ‘Put the cameras over there’, and they’ll all scuttle over there.”

“‘I’m just going to have a cup of coffee’, and you go and sit in the trailer in terror wondering what you’re going to do,” he added.

Scott’s science fiction film “The Martian” will be aired in India on Star Movies on October 9.
