We were first introduced to directing brothers Bill and Turner Ross back in 2009 when we interviewed them for their documentary feature 45365. In their latest film Tchoupitoulas, we get to ride shotgun with the Ross Brothers as they guide us through an epic New Orleans night as experienced by three young brothers. Bill and Turner return to the show in which we discuss going fully legit and attempt to avoid delving into the didactics of documentary filmmaking.
If we present it in a truthful linear way it makes no sense, if we create this one environment where you go through this one night, the truth of that experience is bigger than the sum of its parts.
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
