1. Marcus Lyon has been pursuing his interest in development for decades, using both words and pictures to express his vision of the surrounding world. After studies in political science and leadership, Lyon began his life-long investigation into the issues surrounding globalization. His search has taken him around the world and led him to investigate subjects such as the BRICs (Brazil, Russia, India, China), the mass migrations of the 21st century and, most recently, the ways in which we spend our leisure time today.

  5. During his lone director's commentary for BOOGIE NIGHTS, Paul Thomas Anderson confesses his admiration for the extreme close-up. He states, "I loved extreme close-ups for the longest time, but for some reason, I always felt like, 'No one is getting it exactly the way I want to see it--the way I want to see an extreme close-up.'" Anderson notes Jonathan Demme's THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS as the first time he saw an extreme close-up executed to his liking, stating "That's what an extreme close-up should look like."

    Anderson confesses to spending a great deal of time perfecting his now trademark extreme close-ups, stylizing the detailed shots to fit his specific vision. A PTA extreme close-up usually features a very shallow depth of field, keeping just a tiny portion of the subject sharp while the rest gradually falls out of focus. While it is clear that Anderson often employs these shots as a fun way to stylistically enhance a scene, he is also able to convey meaning with a well-timed ECU--a simple door lock creates tension, tiny pills establish overbearing dependence, a signature foreshadows pending turbulence. Here is a look at some of Paul Thomas Anderson's wonderful extreme close-ups.
