November 22, 2022

We hole up with Tarantino’s “Reservoir Dogs” and discuss:

  • Cinematography, camerawork, off-screen violence;
  • Story & Writing, “single location” filmmaking, skipping the robbery;
  • Low-budget filmmaking tips on finding locations;
  • and other such stuff and things and stuff.

You’ve gotta stand being bad if you want to be a writer, because if you don’t, you’re never going to write anything good. – David Mamet
