About this deal

He also talks about the importance of letting go of the filming once we get into the editing room, so that our choices are not determined by how hard certain shots were to get but rather decide based on what shots best serve the story. Kat has a major issue with anything technical and isn’t particularly happy about having to team up with AI Lock. There are clues you can pick up on, and links that can be made fairly quickly given what we as readers know verses what the Detectives are able to uncover, but the who and the why … yikes.

Not quite on par with "The Conversations," the book of interviews between Murch and Michael Ondaatje, but an absolutely stellar and essential read for anyone interested in film on a more than superficial level.

I spend a lot of time on twitter talking about the books and TV shows that I love, how the writing is going or just chatting about random stuff like the weather, kids, and food. In the Blink of an Eye explores the potential future of technology with an in-depth, unforgettable look at grief and humanity, and how surprisingly, one can aide the other. You may not always succeed, but attempt to produce the greatest effect in the viewer’s mind by the least number of things on screen. Started it just before my holiday and I had to bring the book to Budapest with me so I could continue reading!

Still, it's converted pretty directly from a lecture he delivered, which keeps the material a little close to the surface for my liking -- I should really keep reading this Peter Wollen film theory book I found at the Strand for the denser, deeper conceptual stuff, or more Ruiz perhaps. Starting with some missing persons – both Kat and Lock identifying cases they believe to be solvable. It's so much more than a dystopian police procedural and asks questions about who we are and what it means to be human. Therefore, In The Blink Of An Eye should be read by anyone who wants to make, or indeed, analyze film and television.The book covers the different ways that grief can hit you so well and Kat is a great character, easy to imagine in the mind’s eye as you read.
