Steven Soderbergh does it ‘old school’

Steven Soderbergh tops my list of one of the most exciting director’s in the film industry. For every commercial film he makes (Ocean’s Eleven, Ocean’s Twelve, Ocean’s Thirteen) he’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 1940’s—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 can’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.
