‘Black Mass’ Director Scott Cooper Salutes Artisan Team for Capturing Menace

11 December 2015 11:52 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

When preparing “Black Mass,” director Scott Cooper emphasized that his team of artisans must tell the story, not draw attention to their work. As he told Variety, “The 1970s and ’80s are hard to get right; they’re often garishly costumed and photographed. My first edict to the crew was, ‘Approach this as if it’s 1975 and we’re making a contemporary film.’ They really understood that.”

Cooper surrounded himself with experienced pros, “people who will challenge you, open your eyes, make everybody’s work better. When all the technical aspects are taken care of, I can work with the actors and fine-tune the performance, as opposed to finding it on the day.”

Here, Cooper talks about some key below-the-line contributions.
