Inside the Filmmaking Speed and Efficiency of Steven Soderbergh

He directed all episodes of both seasons of his Cinemax period show 'The Knick' himself and shot most of them too.
Publish date:

Prolific director Steven Soderbergh is known for his proficient, hands-on approach to filmmaking. He directed all episodes of both seasons of his Cinemax period show The Knick himself and shot most of them too--and he did each of them in about 150 days, a breakneck speed for production.

“Steven doesn’t cover the same thing 19 times,” The Knick co-creator Jack Amiel tells Vulture. “He’s going to do it once and know that’ll be his first half of the scene and we’re not going to shoot it again. [For] the second half of the scene, he may shoot three or four pieces of coverage, but it’s because he’s already cut the whole scene in his head. He already knows.”
