Some of you are directors, and I was wondering what do you think about camera-angle directions, transitions, and similar devices in scripts? I have read countless times that it is a huge no-no, especially in spect scripts, but recently bumped onto a tip by John August and Craig Mazin, of Scriptnotes: 1. "Don't write directions in your screenplay" is bad advice. Do directors really mind? Or, in reality, actually like it, as Mazin and August say?
Sequenceshots The great Orson Welles used to say :”A long-playing full shot is what always separates the men from the boys. Anybody can make movies with a pair of scissors and a two-inch lens.” And as usual, the master was totally right. Thanks to movies such as “Children of men”, “Gravity” or “Birdman” (and a lot more) the sequence shots are once again very popular and with the help of digital cinema that removed several limitations we previously had (such for instance the time limitation of 10 minutes due to the size of 35mm film magazines), this kind of shot has become RELATIVELY easier (or at least possible even for small and medium-sized productions). The capital letters are on purpose, since shooting a one-shot sequence is still an extremely complicated thing to do, the longer the harder... More info here.
Hi Guys, just wanted to let you know that I created an open group on Linkedin.com where you can request any shot from a city or a place in the world. If any member lives in this city or place, he can then provide the desired shot. World Cities Shots has just been created, so this is a young community I would like you to join so we can grow together from many Countries and Cities all over the world and share our loving city for Short films for example, and help every film maker to locate its story in another place even if shot locally. I had this idea since I am directing and producing my first Korean movie (located in Korea with Korean actors and Korean lines, but still, shot in Paris !). So I first tryied to find contacts in Korea and I had the thought that what I wanted to do is looking for an answer for every film maker that imagine a story at the other end of the world. World Cities Shots is a free DSLR shots exchange community where every souls can ask and be provided from cities or places he's dreaming of for its movie. Please, feel free to discuss here any suggestions about the concept. I really hope you'll join us !
