And on the note of production, we then discussed the four phases of it:
- Development - Writing the script, deciding the production strategy, finances, pitching etc.
- Pre-Production - assembling the team and actual resources needed (cast, crew, props, costumes, sets, locations, effects, makeup, food, permits etc)
- Production - Just get cracking, already!
- Post-Production - Editing, sound mixing, music, color grading and then, marketing and distribution.
- The story tells of a small family of criminals and their mishaps, which lead to some very grisly results, but is more focused on the day to lives than overblown set pieces or violence.
- We have a druggy, anecdote-spouting father, a whiny adult son who thinks he's tough but still lives with his parents and a mother who seems all but indifferent to the violent and dangerous lifestyle of the two men.
- It's Guy Richtie (major gangster and crime films) meets Edgar Wright (comedies that often genre-bend and have a taste of the dark and macabre to them)
- It a very different take to a lot of the Scorsese-Tarantino style films out there, looking at criminals more in the terms of everyday people than these big, over the top characters.
