THE DAVID FINCHER EXPERIENCE (15TH SEPTEMBER, MADRID)

I had the opportunity of meeting David Fincher yesterday. He gave a “masterclass” in a really expensive and kind of private school of Madrid and I had a chance to go because I won a contest of fb thank to you guys. Here are some kind of chronicle of my experience.

They showed 20 minutes of GONE GIRL, they promised us the first 20 minutes but we realized they were just random clips, anyway, I’m so done and dying even more too see it, damn. (Even I was in the back and when he appeared I just could see a floating head talking lol)

After that, a teacher/director of the school interviewed him, he talked a lot about cinema, and the way he makes films, it was really interesting. He’s so wise and his responses are always complete. He said that he loves actors who are good but he doesn’t like to glorify them, the best thing that can happen on a set is an actor directing another one. He also said on a question about “why fiction/non fiction stories” that all the movies are fiction, even if they’re based on true events. After the interview, the public was allowed to ask him questions.

I ASKED A QUESTION TO HIM, I STAND, HE STARED AT ME, I STARED AT HIM, I TALKED AND IT WAS A CONEXION I KNOW, OKAY.

I told him how hard is to tumblr people to color his stuff and the reason why he always uses the green-yellow coloring in all his films (I said “ugly” coloring and he laughed at me xD)

The answer was that in the 70’s and 80’s people used a lot of pinks and saturated colors to simbolize happiness, so he doesn’t like happiness in his films, and also hates magenta tones because represent that, so using greens/yellows he kill that feeling and create this “non-happy” atmosphere, also he said that it was a good color related to the skin tone of the actors. I was so done.

When the interview ended, he runaway and I was like NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO and run after him in his way to his car, and I yelled at him “David, excuse me” and he stared at me again and I give him my special edition of Fight Club and asked him to sign it and HE DIIIIIDDDD and then he was like, here you are and I had The Social Network prepared in the other hand to be signed and he did it as well!!! (I have Se7en and Panic Room, but since I’m in Madrid I didn’t have the movies here, such a luck that I carry them with me) I was so nervous and shaking a lot.

Inmediately later, this guy (of my college degree who also won a contest, such a casuality) took a selfie of us three with him (the other girl is also in my class) and a reporter took a picture of him taking the picture so we were basically in a really important spanish newspaper lmao (well, I’m like a shadow but I’m there technically)

So, that’s it, such a weird and amazing experience I’ll never forget, really interesting on his vision and really nice, I’m so glad I could take a pic with him, just the fact that he dedicated me a few minutes means a lot because he’s one of my really faves directors, from now on I sleep with my copy of Fight Club and The Social Network lol

Hope you had found this interesting, I thought I own you a little because you guys liked the comment on facebook who brought me there, and I’ll be eternally thankfull for that xxx
