Part 2 of 3: "Soft Prep"
Tomas "Dutch" Deckaj and Scott Bowers are film makers and School Sucks Podcast listeners. I met them last spring in New Orleans where they were working together on a project.
Dutch was the film's First Assistant Director, and he told me his job on set is similar to a principal at a high school. From there we discovered many connections between schooling and the film production process, including Hollywood's reliance on "factory model" of production, hence the series title.
- Dutch and Scott explain where they each started in the film business

- How Dutch and Scott starting working together
- Pre-production and the script

- Tangent: new camera tech changes film making (in the 1970s and in the 21st century)
- Scouting and choosing locations
- Soft-prep: trying to find the look and feel of a film (Tim Burton vs. Christopher Nolan)
- Defense from visual and symbolic programming
