10 Lessons on Filmmaking from Director Ken Loach

10 Lessons on Filmmaking from Director Ken Loach | Machinimania | Scoop.it

Ariston Anderson:  "As a filmmaker, Loach has adopted a working style not unlike that of the characters seen in his films. Unlike the traditional Hollywood model, he’s not driven by his own race to the top, but rather by a collective spirit, a desire to create harmony on the set and to appreciate his crew for a job well done."

Richard Brody:  "The fulsome orthodoxy of Pixar’s twenty-two storytelling rules goes far beyond a single company’s flavor spectrum to a crisis that is endemic to the modern cinema" ...


Via The Digital Rocking Chair
Henrik Safegaard - Cloneartist's insight:

I thought it was a bit like, "Whatever Works" and then it seems to be almost science. Some of the rules are psychological exercises that don’t relate to composition but to a writer’s self-knowledge.

Via The Digital Rocking Chair
Henrik Safegaard - Cloneartist's insight:

Filmmaker Chris Wilson recently gave Cleverbot a job--to help him write a movie. You’ll see that the seemingly simplest task, like thinking up a character’s name, can be a totally foreign concept to Cleverbot one moment, while another moment, the AI becomes lucid, critiquing Wilson’s own taste with highly specific scrutiny.
