"I think anything is possible to anyone who dreams, dares, works and never gives up." - Xavier Dolan, Director of It's Only The End Of The World.
This week we looked at dialogue: text and subtext. We took a scene from another filmmakers script and rewrote it with particular attention paid to the tactics the characters used to try and achieve the ends of their opposing agendas. I tried a new technique, writing the intention/direction in parentheses above each line. Interesting stuff.
Week two of the London Film Festival was just peachy. Highlights included Love Song, a subtle, sensual, semi-improvised film from the director of For Ellen, So Young Kim and It's Only the End of the World, directed by Xavier Dolan, with memorable performances from Marion Cotillard and Vincent Cassel. As with every film from that aggravatingly talented and youthful bastard, there were scenes that will stay with me always.
