EPISODE 18 - SAM MENDES  Team Deakins has a fun, free flowing conversation with frequent collaborator, friend, and the Oscar and Tony Award winning Director: Sam Mendes. Spending 15 years as a Theatre Director, Sam made his foray into filmmaking with his award winning debut of American Beauty. He went on to direct a total of nine films in the ensuing years, including; Road to Perdition, Jarhead, Skyfall, Spectre and 1917. Sam discusses his journey from theatre to film, the differences between the two roles and what he sees as the most important aspects of being a Director. We discuss elements of story, how editing builds tension, and why the idea of a one shot film is much more than meets the eye. A true masterclass between two cinema legends.
