Collaboration with the Coen Brothers, prepping and not using it. (1 reply)
I often tell people the story about how “when Roger Deakins works with the Coen Brothers they make a complete storyboard and decoupage in pre-production and always throw it away as soon as they arrive on set”
I think I read that somewhere ones and I really like that way of thinking. Preparing a way to do it and really get into the scene. But life in the moment on set and see what is in front of you (with the prep in mind). I think that it can work in all sort of fields.
But is this story true? I can’t find the source anywhere anymore.
