A mystery remains in the middle of Alfred Hitchcock's film Psycho. Was it he who directed the Shower Scene or was it the title designer Saul Bass. This mini documentary attempts to find out.
A large part of my research came from this brilliant article by Pat Kirkham - west86th.bgc.bard.edu/articles/kirkham-bass-hitchcock.html
I wanted to put that article to the test by comparing the film clips. I also had the idea of visually minimalising the sequence into a series of basic shapes. Which is an approach Saul Bass used to design his posters and title sequences. In a way I reverse engineered it.
Please excuse the poor voice-over work, when I get a new microphone I will re-record it.
