Coffee & Content - Tony Gilroy Screenwriting Lecture & How Roger Deakins Creates Cinematic Depth

Posted by Richard "RB" Botto

Happy Sunday, Creative Army.

It's been an amazing and rewarding week here at the Austin Film Festival.  Always a thrill getting to hang with so many Stage 32 filmmakers and screenwriters.  We'll have more on all the happenings from the last few days soon, but in the meantime, let's get to the coffee & content.

Tony Gilroy has built a 20 plus year career by writing a wide variety of screenplays including NIGHTCRAWLER, TONY GILROY, THE BOURNE IDENTITY and ROGUE ONE.  Here's a screenwriting lecture Gilroy gave as part of the BAFTA Guru series.

Next, as you all know, Roger Deakins is one of the most respected cinematographers on the planet.  In this extremely well done video from Aputure, we'll take a look at how Deakins uses lighting and other tricks of the trade to create cinematic depth.

As always, I ask you to share this content with those you believe might benefit from viewing.  I also welcome thoughts and musings in the comments section below.
