In our earlier interview with director Carlos Lascano we discussed the parallel production of his personal project A Shadow of Blue and the Amnesty International commissioned piece to mark their 50th anniversary, and how the two shared certain narrative techniques.
I worked at both projects at the same time and of course when you are working on two different projects at the same time, both in your mind, they are connected. So yes it is true that I used some of the same narrative tools.
Watching both pieces you can see how Carlos’ skill as a director results in two distinct pieces despite them simultaneously inhabiting the director’s headspace during the production phase. As always, Carlos also gives us an informative look at the production process in his behind the scenes video for 50 Years.
MarBelle has a strange compulsion to watch as many films as he can get his hands on and find jobs that give him a legitimate excuse to drill filmmakers about their work. Directors Notes is the latest incarnation of this disorder and so much cheaper than film school. Twitter: @MarBelle
