Shot/Reverse Shot: Episode 15 - Directors
In the latest episode of Shot/Reverse Shot, Joe and myself decide to turn our attention to the people behind the camera, the ones who shout "action", "cut", and probably do something else in between to ensure that the films get made. Yes, we talk about Directors. In that spirit, we do a brief history of the role of director, talk about the different kinds of directors that exist in modern film-making, and round things off with a quick Top Ten in which we look to the future and discuss directors who we think have a bright career ahead of them. We also digress along the way, at one point making a reference that will only make sense to longtime fans of the Comedy Bang! Bang! (nee Comedy Death Ray) podcast.
