Detour - The Direction
Right from the start I knew what kind of films I will eventually make. My style of film direction is very much influnced by the films from the 70's era and director Quentin Tarantino. I just like the realism of the acting as opposed to crafted dialogue. Even the camera work in "Detour" are from the style of before, extreme long-shot, extreme close-up. These camera angles are seldom used in current films of late, due to new technology available. In "Detour", the direction we chose was very much a tribute to the 70's horror feel. The term "low budget" really fit our style, but for our case, we when a step further..."no budget".
