Ava DuVernay is exploring what makes that one shot in your favorite film or TV show so perfect.
The prolific filmmaker and her ARRAY Filmworks banner are teaming with Warner Horizon Unscripted Television to create a docuseries called “One Perfect Shot” for HBO Max.
Each episode of “One Perfect Shot,” inspired by the Twitter account of the same name and narrated by DuVernay, will see a director given an array of visual tools to pull back the curtain on their most iconic shots.
The directors will literally enter each shot, walking through the scene in 360 moments that allow viewers to join an immersive exploration of moviemaking. Each filmmaker will share their obstacles, challenges, lessons and triumphs as they detail how they created their cinematic achievements. They will also present one shot from an auteur who deeply influenced them, outlining the inspiration that catalyzed their own imagination.
