Welcome, welcome, welcome to EPISODE 309 of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! Cinematic excellence this week as Pip is joined by director of VVITCH and THE LIGHTHOUSE, it’s ROBERT EGGERS!
A real nice locked on an locked in chat with Robert, which goes in deep as you would want about all things Lighthouse, his latest directorial gem featuring Willem Defoe and Robert Pattinson. It’s a proper film-nerd paradise, as Robert opens up about his VVitch backgrounds, acting under environmental duress, the importance of casting, attitudes to rehearsal and how that informed performances, cinematography (thanks to Jarin Blaschke - pronounced ‘Jah-Rinn Blash-key’), the collaborative nature of the whole endeavour, aspect ratio and cinematic intention, the local history of a location, theatre vs film, flatulence (it’s in context) and all manner of movie magic. You’ll dig it and your intrigue for The Lighthouse will certainly be piqued - keep an eye out for that and ENJOY THIS CONVERSATION!
