MR. BLUE (SHORT FILM)
Mr. Blue Director’s Statement.
I wanted to explore the idea of human law vs nature's law and what happens when they are at odds.
My goal was to demonstrate how the language of classic framing and composition created by such filmmakers as Alfred Hitchcock, David Lean, Sidney Lumet, Akira Kurosawa (and many more) is still the most effective way to hold an audience's attention.
I also thought it would be a fun challenge to shoot a film entirely with natural light.
