"How Christopher Nolan Writes and Directs a Movie", from StudioBinder



"How Christopher Nolan Writes and Directs a Movie", from StudioBinder and “The Director’s Chair”.

  
He gives eight concepts, one of which is “scene geography”.  The audience should feel they are visiting a real place (in a sense) that they could move around it.  My own screenplay Epiphany is largely set inside an O’Neill Cylinder with various little communities you can travel between, and the communities are tied to past time periods on Earth, as are the characters (in a sense).

He talks about rising intensity (using “Dunkirk”).
  
He also talks about the Shepard Tone in music, a rising scale of which note is accented, giving a barber pole effect.
