“He [Ridley Scott] thinks on multiple story levels all the time, his pen is always moving, always sketching images with a phenomenal draftsmen’s eye.” Scott would see an image in his mind, and Spaihts’ job was often to make it happen in the story. “Sometimes my job was to push back. ‘No, someone can’t float around in the scene, we have gravity here.’”
