=============== About this video ====================

A great exercise for directors is to breakdown a script from a famous movie, and then compare their work to the finished film to see what choices the director made and why.

In this video I breakdown the first sequence of Bridge of Spies, from the published shooting script (Link: http://dreamworksawards.com/download/BOS_screenplay.pdf - It might have been written after the movie was edited). I write down the shot division and storyboard the entire sequence and then compare it to the original. I watched the movie for the first time only after completing the exercise.

Just to be clear: Steven Spielberg is a great director and an inspiration to me. This is in no way any sort of comparison in ability, nor a critique of his work. It's one thing to create a storyboard and a totally different thing to actually bring that to the screen. If it were so simple anybody, including me, would have done it already. This is just an exercise, nothing more.
