Your Production Jedi down in Cuba. Just shining light on all the people, places, and things helping shape the narrative today

Remember Boogie Nights’ long pool scene? The continuous “one-take” shot that patiently maneuvered through the poolside, through various characters? The last image being a hot babe getting up from her chair as the camera follows her diving into the water.

Paul Thomas Anderson was inspired by a classic Cuban film called Soy Cuba. The film was directed in 1964 by Russian Filmmaker Mikhail Kalatozov. Shooting this particular type of scene was extremely pioneering back then.

If you haven’t seen the original, see trailer above. Then run to Netflix.
