‘Moonlight’ Director on the Power of Film’s Off-Page Seo
Posted On July 27, 2021
Off-page seos can be quite a powerful tool in a director’s arsenal, but the power they bring to a film’s narrative can be particularly tricky to master.
This year, Korean director Kim Byung-wook, whose latest feature, Moonlight, is currently in production, went back to the drawing board with the directorial debut of the upcoming 2017 film The Revenant, which is based on the popular Stephen King novel of the same name.
The film centers on a young man named Connor, who has been granted a chance to live out his own wild and crazy imagination and find a family that would accept him as he is.
While the young man is happy to have his own place, his life takes a turn when his best friend, Connor’s older brother, dies.
This leads to Connor being haunted by his own mortality, his fear of death, and the terrible trauma that Connor experienced.
The film’s title, in fact, is a reference to a line from the novel.
“Moonlight” director Kim has spent a great deal of time in the editing room and was impressed by how the film came out, he told the Guardian.
“I watched the film with a couple of other directors and it was really cool to see how it came out and how it took a different approach.
The way the story was told was really interesting.
I liked how it was done in a very off-page way, and how the narrative of the film was built on a number of different characters.”

What was the hardest part about directing a film like this?

That’s why I wanted to get into editing when I started making films.
I didn’t want to just get into film editing as a hobby.
But the editing process is the hardest aspect.
I think editing is a great tool for directors.
It gives them the freedom to work on a story in the way they want.
It’s also an art form, so you have a lot of creative freedom.
I think it’s important for a director to have a good understanding of their craft, and that’s why the editing is so important.
I really enjoyed working with the crew on the film, and it’s really cool that they were so patient with me.
It was really fun.
