Hitch on Pure Cinema

“Photographs of people talking… bares no relation to the art of the cinema.”

That quote alone makes this clip of Hitchcock wisdom worth watching.

Will your screenplay result in “photographs of people talking”?
Or will it instead be pure cinema?

Another nice one: “Tell the story visually and let the talk be part of the atmosphere.” Hitch also responds to his being ‘canonized’ by the leaders of the French avant garde.

Expect a lot more of Hitchcock goodness on Wednesdays!
