Hitchcock's Filmmaking Notes


I ran across this site on Kottke.org that discusses Alfred Hitchcock's filmmaking techniques. This is a very interesting read.

Hitchcock was an innovator, but he was also a storytelling purist. He was careful not to abandon the cornerstones of good storytelling in order to show us a new camera trick, etc. His motto: keep the story simple.

Interesting.

Say, what do Eminem, Geena Davis, Whoopi Goldberg, Cuba Gooding, Jr., and Isaac Hayes have in common?

Each of them has more Oscars than Hitch. And I didn't even bring up Three-6 Mafia. Sigh...
