We experiment with Shane Carruth’s sci-fi cult classic “Primer” and discuss:

  • Cinematography, shooting ratios;
  • Audio, selling a location;
  • Story & writing, advancing the story offscreen;
  • Low budget filmmaking;
  • and other such stuff and things and stuff.

If we worked on the assumption that what is accepted as true really is true, then there would be little hope for [advancement]. – The Wright Brothers
