Well, even though I have never made a film, I sure as hell know alot about it as well as see many films during this summer. We all have a certain writing style; however, we all have never found our own. Are you an Alfred Hitchcock (suspensful) director, Quintain Tarrentino (graphic/gritty) director or an Andrei Trakovsky (artsy) director? For me, I'd think of myself as a combination of Andrei, Hitchcock as well as Nolan where I have a slow, but meditative pace while having a nonlinear narrative as well as making my actors experince the part so they would have some suggestions for that character, making it more natural, psycological and interesting for the viewer. I would also develop as much as I can, without much explination (show don't tell is a rule I go by), and always have a developing balance so that overdeveloped characters do not pull down a very underdeveloped plot/vise versa. Whenever I make my own atmosphere, I would typically rely on some orchestra or 50's jazz *inspried by Sweet Smell of Succes* while in a relaxing and slow moment of the film. to add tension, I would typically add no music and focus on the actor's body expressions, of none just facial, so the audience would see, and possibly feel, this character's emotions without ever being told. If I were forced to add comic relief, I would be the hardest on that character in development and performance so that if the jokes are bad, the character's personality, characterization, and performance will make it all the better. The dialog will only focus on two things: story and intellectual development. Part of the dialog will aid the audience into understanding the setting, mood as well as the overal tone of the entire movie. The other part will reveal these characters in the perspective of someone who likes them or hates them. This will have a surprising affect on the development of these characters, making the audience say "that was unexpected". The emotional development of these characters will be shown through a visual narrative whether it be through dreams, body motions, revealing hobbies and etc. Philosophy would be the typical part of my films: What makes us human? How far can we take technology? Are we really doing a bad thing or our we doing something someone else doesn't want us to do just because they are supposivly above us? My overall genre of storytelling will typically be of psycological horror; showing the audience the intensitiy of a character in a really massive situation as well as film noir. Well, there you have it, my direction style now you try :D.
