Steven Soderbergh does it â€˜old schoolâ€™
Steven Soderbergh tops my list of one of the most exciting directorâ€™s in the film industry. For every commercial film he makes (Oceanâ€™s Eleven, Oceanâ€™s Twelve, Oceanâ€™s Thirteen) heâ€™ll make an unconventional, non-commercial film (Schizopolis, Full Frontal, Bubble).
His latest film, The Good German was made the way films were made in the 1940â€™sâ€”black and white film, no zoom lenses, single camera set-ups, boom microphones, no digital back lots. The NY Times has an interesting story on the way this film was made. I canâ€™t wait to see the end result.
Soderbergh is the only director I know that writes, directs, shoots, edits and produces his own films. At the moment he has 4 projects that he is directing and 11 projects that he is producing. Incredible.
Thanks to James for the link on the NY Times story.
