We have the legendary director Catherine Hardwicke on the show this week. In light of her upcoming Quibi show Don’t Look Deeper, she has decided to discuss the “near future” film Gattaca. Catherine talks about her start in the film industry as a production designer and how that influenced her directing career. She elaborates on the techniques she used with Twilight and Thirteen to get the actors comfortable with one another. Plus, she reveals the minor regrets she has with a few of her films.
You can watch Don’t Look Deeper on Quibi this summer.
If you haven’t seen Gattaca…it’s quite good
AND, if you want to check out April’s Staff Pick – watch Kristina Buozyte’s Vanishing Waves
