Long Shot

The continuous shot, if directed properly and the actors stay on point, is one of the most impressive feats in filmmaking but this opening scene of Boogie Nights is still one of my favorites. There’s so many moving parts.  Amazing cinematography, you meet every major character and Paul Thomas Anderson delivers rich exposition without once coming off heavy-handed.  I’ve never seen 3 minutes go by so fast. Fucking brilliant.

New Sketch

Tommy came to me a while back with this concept and I just scripted it out for him.  Amazing acting here from Chris O’Connor, Jacquie Baker and, of course, Tommy Pope.
