We sprint through Danny Boyle’s “28 Days Later” and discuss:
- cinematography, how the film medium affects the story;
- story and writing;
- and other such stuff and things and stuff.
“Show people your stuff, listen carefully to their responses, but ultimately don’t value anyone’s opinion above your own. Be influenced by writers you dislike as well as writers you like. Read their stuff to figure out what’s wrong. Find a balance between the confidence that allows you continue, and the self-critical facility that enables you to improve. Get the balance wrong on either side, and you’re screwed.“ – Alex Garland

I’m rewatching it right now and you are SO RIGHT about the effect of the DV tape. I remember feeling so nauseous in the theatre watching this and now 18 years later watching it again … those bloomed edges and the crushed lights and darks. DV tape absolutely heightens the sickness.
I’m gonna go barf now…
Thanks, Joe!! Got your barfbag right here! 😀
