Useful words of advice from Film Crit Hulk…

October 16, 2013

So, last week I thought a lot about structure. About plot, and character, and action and what made a thriller work, what made fighting set pieces interesting. The answers I came to were obvious (character drives plot, characterisation makes you care about the cool action scenes, you can’t cheat on the character stuff). I read a lot about screen plays mainly from Film Crit Hulk, who is thoughtful and insightful. If you ignore the all caps.

But his back catalogue is also useful – a lot about why films work and why they DON’T work. Interesting stuff.

You may note i haven’t updated any more. This is because it actually just stresses me out, so that experiment did not work.
