Take 5 minutes to watch and appreciate the genius of the Coen brothers.

Frances McDormand鈥檚 comments at the end are really interesting. When she does a movie, one thing she asks the director is if they storyboard. Why?

Even if I never see them (storyboards), to know that a director鈥 is thinking about how it鈥檚 going to be edited, that鈥檚 what I learned from Joel and Ethan. Then I know what I鈥檓 serving. I do not believe that it鈥檚 an actor鈥檚 medium nor a director鈥檚 medium, I believe it鈥檚 an editor鈥檚 medium, so as an actor if I鈥檓 serving the final edit of a film, which is what I believer storyboards prepare you for, then I know the person knows what they鈥檙e doing. If someone comes to me and says, 鈥楾his director is really great with actors,鈥 I don鈥檛 care. Because I know how to do my job, I don鈥檛 them to help me do my job. Do they know how to edit the film? I鈥檇 love to work with them.

With the Coen brothers, that editing process all starts at the script stage. Their screenplays are so tightly written, their vision so clear, there鈥檚 hardly ever any variation from script to screen.

Takeaway: When you write a script, be sure to put on your editor鈥檚 hat.
