Edgar wright

  1. 1.
  2. 2. History<br />Edgar Howard Wright born 18 April 1974 is an English film director and writer.<br />Throughout the 1990’s, Wright directed many short films, first on a amateur camera which was a gift from a family member and later on led to more as people discovered his talent in making amateur movies.<br />
  3. 3. Why am I writing about Edgar?<br />After I saw Shaun of the dead and hot fuzz I instantly was impressed by the style he shot his movies and how he managed to really emphasis certain pieces of comedy.<br />Edgar’s way of presenting comedy can be extremely subtle which is a rare quality in a director, this is shown in Shaun of the dead which have subtle references to George Romero's zombie films.<br />
  4. 4. What made him so famous?<br />He really became famous after Shaun of the dead hit instantly making people notice his skill .<br />Most people would say the way he can bluntly put comedy out and just how subtle it can be also but is so versatile.<br />His fast paced comedy style has also made him famous in movies and TV shows.<br />
  5. 5. A list of his work<br />Film’s<br />Scott pilgrim vs the world<br />Grindhouse<br />Hot fuzz<br />The man who would be Shaun<br />Funky Pete<br />Shaun of the dead<br />Fun dead<br />TV series<br />Spaced<br />Sir Bernard’s Stately Homes<br />Murder Most Horrid<br />French and Saunders<br />Merry Go Round<br />Is it Bill Bailey?<br />Mash and Peas<br />Asylum<br />
  6. 6. What inspired Shaun of the dead<br />Few people know that Edgar wright is a massive fan of George Romero's zombie films and his movie shaun of the dead is filled with references to Romero’s zombie films. He also made a appearance in George Romero's fourth zombie film Land of the dead<br />
  7. 7. His movie making quotes<br />Everything that I've done so far has had a bigger budget than the last, but I've never ever felt the benefit of the bigger budget because the ideas always exceed the budget.<br />I think it's good to have pressure on yourself. The worst crime is to get kind of really complacent.<br />
  8. 8. Trade mark style<br />Repeated lines or snippets of dialogue for comedic effect<br />He is well known for his Fast action style editing, usually of casual tasks, including whip pans and crash zooms<br />Awkward humour in fast paced moments is well known by Edgar and is shown in many of his movies<br />
  9. 9. Interviews and trailers<br />Scott Pilgrim vs. the world his work behind it.<br />http://www.imdb.com/video/screenplay/vi1273497113/<br />Shaun of the dead trailer<br />http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CfBewQPFdKE<br />This clearly shows Edgar's style very clearly<br />Hot Fuzz trailer<br />http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kzTLidmYM2Y<br />
