This weeks guest is J. A. Bayona the director of Society of the Snow, Netflix’s new smash hit movie. He is also the director of The Orphanage, A Monster Calls, The Impossible, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom and the TV series Rings of Power.
J.A sits down with fellow director Giles Alderson to discuss Society of the Snow and making disaster films. Creating huge set pieces and THAT plane crash.
He talks planning and shooting in the snow and cold, creating tension, story boarding, animatics and actors creativity.
Shooting chronologically and not cutting.
Why he wants his actors to take risks.
How has he changed as a director since he made his debut movie The Orphanage.
What is the biggest hurdle he over came and what it means to be a director.
Society of the Snow is OUT NOW on NETFLIX.
