On directing film | David Mamet

Interesting set of classes Mamet taught about interrogating each shot in a film, demanding that each shot fit the hero‘s superobjective and thus creating a clean dramatic arc in which every shot communicates the hero‘s progression. Quick read on the craft of film.

pdever Welcome. I wonder about David Mamet on film...the guy uses too many words for my taste in cinema. I like his plays, though! 11mo
Nag1 Hi. I liked the conversation with his students. It made me think of beats. I haven‘t read his plays. Any play you recommend? 11mo
