M. Night Shyamalan’s Unbreakable Career – The Cinematic Schematic #10

The original post can be found at The Cinematropolis

Happy New Year listeners! In this month’s edition of The Cinematic Schematic examining M. Night Shyamalan’s career, Daniel Bokemper joins me to review the highly anticipated follow up Unbreakable and its backdoor sequel, SplitGlass.

All January long, we’ve been reflecting on Shyamalan’s career. Take an even close look by reading about the highs and lows of his storytelling in these in depth essays.

Alexandra Bohannon takes us back through M. Night Shyamalan’s career by looking at his collaborations with James Newton Howard in The Sixth SenseUnbreakable, and eventually the much-maligned The Last Airbender. Don’t worry, the film score analysis ends with a twist!

The show closes with part 3 of our ongoing audio diary interview series with the minds behind Shifter (two of The Cinematropolis co-founders), Jacob and Zachary Burns. We recap their experience filming the first phase of the movie, discuss what they are doing between phase one and phase two, and how they are beginning to prepare for post-production.  If you want to be a part of the making of a bold new time travel film, consider contributing to the Shifter Indie Go Go at SHIFTERFILM.COM.
