Los Angeles - The most synonymous definition of suspense is by all accounts Alfred Hitchcock. Often referred to as Hitch by those who knew him and worked with him.
The genius of this man lay in his ability to create suspense as no other filmmaker has ever done. With 50 plus features to his directorial credit, along with an armada of awards and accolades, for his visual mastery of the cinema, that has left us with an indelible commentary on the craft and art of movie making.
We take a closer look at the techniques he utilized in creating some of the most remarkable entertainment features that have graced the silver screen.
His body of work spans nearly six decades from the early days of the silent cinema to the age of sound and subsequently color film-making. Every director of notable rank has in one way or another incorporated some of Hitchcock's methods to their own iconic masterpieces.
Whether story boarding, sparsely blocking, point of view sequencing or editing, that is the montage style. All can be attributed in one way or another to Hitch's pioneering techniques.
Here then is a virtual master class in our Fundamental series on the theory and practice of the visual story telling approach to the craft and the art of the cinema, in the words of the master himself.
