Steven Spielberg Directing Style Explained [Point of Thought]

Steven Spielberg Directing Style Explained [Point of Thought]

The secret effective tool behind Steven Spielberg’s directing technique. This video will show you EXACTLY how Steven Spielberg keeps audiences engaged like nobody else with ‘point of thought’. Read more about Spielberg’s directing style ►►

Here’s what we’ll go over in this video:

First off we’ll talk about where Spielberg learned first developed his technique. It starts with another acclaimed direction, the master of suspense, Alfred Hitchcock and his use of the POV shot.

From there we’ll show how Spielberg made this fundamental cinematic tool his own, and took the movie experienced to new heights with his variation which we call “Point of Thought.”

Next we’ll go through some of the best examples of this tool at work. Some you’ll remember, and some where you’ll be shocked at how the director was working without you even knowing it.

Finally I’ll show you how I took what I learned from watching and studying both of these masters and applied it to my own short film.

These are easy to use filmmaking tools that any director can incorporate into their shot lists and storyboard.
