Extension 765 — Raiders

Steven Soderbergh strips the color and sound from Raiders of the Lost Ark in order to learn about staging:

So I want you to watch this movie and think only about staging, how the shots are built and laid out, what the rules of movement are, what the cutting patterns are. See if you can reproduce the thought process that resulted in these choices by asking yourself: why was each shot—whether short or long—held for that exact length of time and placed in that order? […] this filmmaker forgot more about staging by the time he made his first feature than I know to this day (for example, no matter how fast the cuts come, you always know exactly where you are—that’s high level visual math shit).

"More human than human" is our motto.

New York Film Academy’s study of gender inequality in the film industry.

Wanna know something? Editing used to be a “woman’s job” during the days of the old hollywood studio system, because it was done in an assembly-line fashion and seen as menial and boring. But as soon as editing began to be recognized as an art form, men swarmed the position

We should also think about these numbers when it comes to WOC, Queer, and/or *Trans women in the industry.

I’m curious to know what the gender split is in VFX work. IIRC, in the documentary Sense of Scale, there was only one woman represented in their 32 interviews of miniature / model shop artisans. Is the rest of VFX also overwhelmingly male?

Episode 008A is out!
