I'm investigating his output to see if I can use some of his ideas to help me with the mise-en-scene for my storyboard project.
We also looked at the classic 60's British films dubbed 'Kitchen Sink' Dramas. 'Cathy Come Home' (Dir. Ken Loach 1966) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g9NZhnU0tuo
Poor Cow (Dir. Ken Loach 1967) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8LX0GGo86Ww
and 'A Taste of Honey' (Dir. Tony Richardson 1961) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w4-hUmxnfOE&feature=related
to see if the staging used in them could help me construct believable environments for my characters. Austerity Britain looks just like these films
