In this video, we look at what constitutes a film homage, and what I consider to be the criteria for a good one.
As an example, we look at a sequence from FRANCES HA, where Noah Baumbach quoted director Leos Carax from his film MAUVAIS SANG.
After my trip to Sweden, I watched the full-length versions of the 3 original feature films in the Millenium Trilogy, based on the books by Stieg Larssen.
We look at the introduction of main character Lisbeth Salander, and how Steven Zaillian – wrote the adaptation – removed some of the tension.
Finally, I show a clip from RED DEAD REDEMPTION 2, and the original sequence in Butch Cassidy And The Sundance Kid that was quoted in the game.
This is a Facebook preview of a video that will soon be posted to my YouTube channel, to which I would love you to subscribe!
Karel Segers wrote his first produced screenplay at age 17. Today he is a story analyst with experience in acquisition, development and production. He has trained students worldwide, and worked with half a dozen Academy Award nominees. Karel speaks more European languages than you have fingers on your left hand, which he is still trying to find a use for in his hometown of Sydney, Australia. The languages, not the fingers.
