Ep 14: “Baby Driver”

September 26, 2017

In this episode we check out Edgar Wright’s “Baby Driver” and discuss:

  • Edgar Wright’s style;
  • foreshadowing;
  • editing on set;
  • the opening scene and the title sequence;
  • and much more.

Maybe directors who are more interested in realism and naturalism come from cities, where they see things on their doorstep every day. But growing up as a kid in a very pretty but ever-so-slightly boring town, where not a great deal happened, encouraged me to be more escapist, more imaginative, and more of a daydreamer.– Edgar Wright

This Week’s Recommendations:

Todd recommends his stovetop popcorn recipe:
Get a large pot, add a tablespoon of butter, a couple tablespoons of coconut oil, line the bottom of the pan with popcorn, turn the heat to medium-high, give it a couple shakes as it begins popping and once it’s done popping just add salt.

    Your in-depth scrub of the editing and reshooting really puts the love of editing in full exposure and perspective. I love hearing if that passion!
