For my documentary, I’m going to do it about the legendary Warner Bros director, Michael Curtiz. He directed classics like Captain Blood, The Adventures of Robin Hood, The Sea Hawk, Yankee Doodle Dandy, Casablanca and White Christmas. For A-roll, I plan on interviewing students from my club, Works in Progress, Prof. Thaler and a few more people active in the Communications Department.
For B-roll, I’ll be using footage from a few Curtiz films like Casablanca, Robin Hood, etc. I’ll be asking questions like: Is he an auteur? What were his most memorable films? Do you notice any techniques from him? Do you recommend his films? For editing, I plan to edit some of it on this Wednesday and the rest of the film on Friday.
I saw a documentary about pop artist Andy Warhol and I thought that it was well edited and visually compelling. It gave me more insight into the popular artist behind those Campbell Soup paintings. It revealed Warhol’s insecurities and what made him the way he was. I highly recommend that anyone watch it.
