(Greek πρόλογος prólogos, from pro, “before” and lógos, “word”)
is an opening to a story that establishes the setting and gives background details, often some earlier story that ties into the main one, and other miscellaneous information. The Ancient Greek prólogos included the modern meaning of prologue, but was of wider significance, more like the meaning of preface. The importance, therefore, of the prologue in Greek drama was very great; it sometimes almost took the place of a romance, to which, or to an episode in which, the play itself succeeded.

On choosing between being a musician and being a filmmaker
“I was 20 and I was sitting on a bed in the Columbia Hotel, which is a very famous rock ‘n’ roll hotel in London, and I was in a band and we had a record deal and I had a per diem. I had money in my pocket, and I was really as a young musician in school. I had arrived. This was sort of perfect, and we were touring in England and I just had this incredible feeling of dissatisfaction and I had bought a Super 8 camera and I was starting to shoot silent movie footage, and I had a camcorder back in Dublin and we were doing sort of slasher videos and comedy sketches and I remember being faced with this decision – that if I go with this band any further it’s going to be harder each year or month to turn back and reinvent myself or have a new career in filmmaking, which was really vocational and was really calling at me. … It was a no brainer. The hard decision was only, “Oh I’m going to be broke again.”
