This Is Not a Drill. Ava DuVernay Has Turned ‘One Perfect Shot’ into an HBO Docuseries
Art and Experience: The new docuseries from HBO Max invites us to geek out over the most iconic shots from our favorite movies.
Announced today, One Perfect Shot is a new streaming series that will explore the secrets of beloved movie moments.
Narrated and executive produced by Oscar nominee Ava DuVernay, One Perfect Shot is a half-hour unscripted series produced by Warner Horizon Unscripted Television with DuVernay’s production company, ARRAY Filmworks.
The show’s concept sounds amazing. Each episode will feature a director who will walk the audience through their most iconic shots. According to HBO Max, the show will utilize new VFX tools that will allow the director to “enter” the shot and explain it in a virtual, immersive, 360-degree version of the set.
Each director will also discuss a movie shot from another film that inspired them.
“I’ve long wanted to create a series about the art of directing,” DuVernay said in the WarnerMedia press release. “To chronicle the craft of great filmmakers is a dream come true for me and all of us at ARRAY Filmworks. We’re thrilled that our partners at Warner Horizon Unscripted Television embraced this idea and look forward to fully geeking out over movies with our friends at HBO Max.”
