Jan De Bont on filmmaking + Kuleshov effect origins

jan de bontLast week it was Renny Harlin, now it’s Jan De Bont; it’s a two for two in action director commentaries. It’s great listening to all these different directors talk about cinema and illuminate us about their craft. Jan De Bont’s insight into action filmmaking and filming technicals was a treat for me. It’s especially nice to listen to this one because De Bont was also a cinematographer before he made Speed – so he throws some information on how he shot a few scenes in order to keep the energy going by using various camera tricks.


Also I’ve cut out this segment from a Soviet documentary on the Kuleshov effect, where the man himself – Lev Kuleshov talks about the origins of this discovery and its need for cinema.
