We march through Sam Mendes’ “1917” and discuss:
- cinematography, first and last frame, creating coverage in a long take;
- story & writing, setups and payoffs;
- editing, tips & tricks of hiding a cut;
- and other such stuff and things and stuff.
“The enemy? His sense of duty was no less than yours, I deem. You wonder what his name is, where he came from. And if he was really evil at heart. What lies or threats led him on this long march from home. If he would not rather have stayed there in peace. War will make corpses of us all.“ – J.R.R. Tolkien
