It was a lot of fun meeting Michel Hazanaviciu, director of Academy Award Nominated film The Artist, in a LA Fox11 Hangout and having a chance to ask Michel a question about his creative process in directing actors in a silent film.
Michel said a lot of work were put into crafting the script well to make it so that the images can tell the story instead of through dialogues. The actors do say the lines even we don’t hear it and we were told John Goodman loves to improvise his lines. It was a lot of fun meeting Michel. I will post a video of the hangout when LA Fox 11 posts.
Here is a beautiful trailer of The Artist.
