Frankensteins Monster | A4 | Graphite on Paper

When I looked around I saw none and heard of none like me.

Was I, then, a monster, a blot upon the earth

from which all men fled and whom all men disowned?

“I’m an actor and I’ve taken it upon myself - I’ve made it my responsibility to investigate different walks of life and try my best to portray it. And it’s good to be a little ruthless with your career. If you make decisions based upon people’s reactions or judgments then you make really boring choices. And I would just get bored with my choices. So, you know, you have to be a little ruthless.” — Heath Ledger

Directing “Seven Samurai” (1954) like a boss. Note the dude in the background (L) totally jocking Kurosawa’s fishing hat style and the disembodied arm holding a light meter to the guy’s face front right. 

I wanted to be as subtle as possible. I wanted to avoid that heavy-handed quality that tells you something is a flashback. I wanted to feel like we were slipping into a moment that we weren’t sure if it was the present or the past. There can be subtle visual cues, like a haircut or how the characters are dressed. I think that’s more interesting than defining things too heavily. I’d rather give the audience clues to make assumptions or inferences.
