From IMDB: Born in India but raised in the posh suburban Penn Valley area of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, M. Night Shyamalan is the son of two doctors. His passion for filmmaking began when he was given a Super-8 camera at age eight, and even at that young age began to model his career on that of his idol, Steven Spielberg. His first film, Praying with Anger (1992), was based somewhat on his own trip back to visit the India of his birth. He raised all the funds for this project, in addition to directing, producing and starring in it. Wide Awake (1998), his second film, he wrote and directed, and shot it in the Philadelphia-area Catholic school he once attended—even though his family was of a different religion, they sent him to that school because of its strict discipline.

From Wikipedia: Martin Scorsese was born in New York City. His father, Luciano Charles Scorsese (1900–1993), and mother, Catherine Scorsese (née Cappa; 1912–1997), both worked in New York's Garment District, his father as a clothes presser and his mother as a seamstress. It was at this stage in his life that he developed his passion for cinema. Scorsese developed an admiration for neo-realist cinema. He recounted its influence in a documentary on Italian neorealism, and commented on how The Bicycle Thief inspired him and how this influenced his view or portrayal of his Sicilian heritage. His initial desire to become a priest was forsaken for cinema – the seminary traded for NYU Film School, where he received his MFA in film directing in 1969.

"How could I have done this? Doesn't make any sense. Where is the protagonist, where is the antagonist, where is the drama? Unavoidable. Gotta re-shoot."
