Let's talk about storytelling and adventures and films and television and books and photography and cinematography and all kinds of music except country and traveling and how breakfast is the best meal of the day.

I will fight you on that last one.

Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom | Steven Spielberg | 1983

Revised script for the 1983 film. Working screenplay, with red rubber stamp watermark INDY 2 MAR22 00059 on the recto of each leaf. Mechanically reproduced, raised text, with one revision in original typescript. The only working copy of this script we have ever handled.

A working script produced about one month prior to the commencement of shooting, which began on April 18, 1983. From the collection of cinematographer Carlos Gil.

The second film in the renowned Indiana Jones series (which we insist on continuing to refer to as a trilogy), a dark prequel to the first installment, “Raiders of the Lost Ark.” Steven Spielberg spared no effort in making a breathlessly entertaining adventure film in the old style, utilizing a minimum of special effects. Pauline Kael called the film, “one of the most sheerly pleasurable films ever made,” and Roger Ebert deemed it, “not so much a sequel as an equal. It’s quite an experience.”

Black spring binder. Title page present, marked copy No. 00059, dated 3/1/83, noted as Revised, with credits for story writer Lucas, screenwriters Huyck and Katz, and director Spielberg. 133 leaves, mechanically reproduced on yellow stock, with yellow revision pages throughout, dated 3/1/83 and 3/10/83. Pages Near Fine, spring binder Near Fine.

In a custom red quarter-leather clamshell box.

"You look at your film and say, “Well, is this a big commercial idea? If it’s not, how can I do it for less?” And if I can’t do it for less, how do I do it so that those people come and those people leave satisfied without compromising my integrity? That’s the tug of war with every single film. That’s the bones of Edge of Tomorrow. It was a constant struggle to reconcile the size of the movie with the complexity of the movie with the emotional demands of the movie. I think in a lot of ways we were successful. I think in other ways we paid the price. Only time will tell what people really think of it."

Production DesignHanna (2011)

Snow was the starting point in our design. The story begins, and the audience arrives in a place, and you don’t know where it is, what century it is, or who the characters are. Hans Christian Andersen was our inspiration, but we expanded on tradition to introduce our interpretations–including the book that Hanna has had at home. - Sarah Greenwood

"[As a screenwriter] there’s one thing that you have to know, that’s a deal-breaker … you have to know human behaviour. You cannot ‘pass go’, you cannot move forward (you’re dead, stopped right here, right now) if you don’t know human behaviour."

Producer Stuart Cohen has an amazingly comprehensive making-of blog regarding JOHN CARPENTER’S THE THING

there’s a great deal worth reading but maybe none moreso than the linked piece above, about how Carpenter took advantage of a six-week break in filming to watch what he had, realize it wasn’t working, and go to town on the whole affair with a scalpel.
