CU Film Directing Exercise - Donnie Brasco
Ariel and I have been working with Edwin Ho, a first-year directer in the Film program for a good part of the semester. He asked us back to do a directing exercise for him and we got together last week and shot an excerpt from the film Donnie Brasco. The exercise was to take a scene from an established film and put his own twist on it. This is what he came up with.
It's always really wonderful to work with Ariel; she's such a giving performer and a strong screen presence. And Getting to work with Edwin repeatedly during the semester has really been a treat.
I hope you enjoy it. Now I'm off to go close The Government Inspector with Ariel and the rest of the Class of 2014. Cheers!
