I've never participated in an AMA before. Are there any rules? Do I just post and see if he responds to my question? I'll probably ask something cinematography-related.

No rules, no guarantees about what he sees or replies to. There'll be thousands of posts.

I've got my question(s) picked out! It's sort of a bunch rolled into one, but I'm hoping the techie in Paul comes out and he's willing to write about these things. My address will be:

What choices did the team make about lighting? Did you use tungsten indoors? Were there any points where you bounced HMIs into the house through the windows (there are some shots with an evening blue sky coming in, so maybe this was from the balance to the tungsten interior)? Was there a general approach to lighting conversation scenes (e.g., two-point, three-point, overheads, etc.)? How did the tight indoor spaces affect the decision process for lighting?

Hopefully that's not too much to ask since they're all questions about lighting. :P

2017 In Film / Re: The Florida Project

I finally saw this last night. Spoilers ahead!




With regard to the ending, are you guys referring to the cut from Moonee crying to the fast motion run? I found that visually very jarring and it totally took me out of the emotional resonance of what had just happened. The upbeat music was also really jarring. However, I don't mind that they ended with the shot of the Disney castle; it serves as a reminder of the juxtaposition of Halley's and Moonee's life and that of what people with children choose to go to Florida for, which is to luxuriate in the expensive make-believe magic world of Disney.

I will say that the silent credits roll was an AMAZING choice. Absolutely amazing. All of a sudden, after all that's happened and this big musical crescendo, the theatre goes silent and everyone is too stricken by what just happened with the story to say anything louder than in a whisper. That was a very interesting experience in itself, and kudos to Sean Baker and team for that one. I thought the editing was really good on the whole as well, and I saw that Sean Baker did it himself.

That is so awesome! Never participated in any of those live but seems like the best interview-related news we could hope for.
Any questions you are already thinking about? I wonder how many people will participate and how difficult it will be to get his answer. Hope PTA die-hards will not disappoint and that will be the first Phantom Thread interview with no questions about DDL retirement.

Exactly. He'll pick questions, will give answers. Will disappear forever. I like AMA. I like when writers write.

Never done one live, but my sense is we just type our questions and the guest selectively answers them. 

Got to give the dude credit:  He's working his ass off to promote this film.  I guess it's part of the way The Biz works, but it really sounds exhausting.  Wonder if it's "mandatory", ie a legal requirement of the deal signed with the financiers, etc, or if he's doing it because he's passionate about getting the film seen--or both.

that this came and went without a blip is a travesty.  i was quite taken with this.  devastating and beautiful.  plays like bergman directing a script by alain resnais.  exceptional performances from everyone.  yet another gorgeous mica levi score, part of which sounded eerily similar to bits of phantom thread.  my top ten for the year needs amending. 

it's streaming on amazon prime.
