A reflective place

Posted on: August 1, 2021

John Krasinski is the writer and director of A Quiet Place Part II. He could also be a model of how to operate in a reflective place.

In reflecting on the processes behind the opening scene of his product, he addressed these questions:

  • How did they do it?
  • Why did you it that way?
  • What did you think about your effort?

These are questions that any learner crafting a reflection in a portfolio should ask. 

And here is a bonus at the end: Krasinski mentioned how a mistake at the end of the scene turned out to be a boon. The camera came loose in the action and accidentally zoomed in on his on-screen and real life wife, Emily Blunt. This created an unintended but desirable visual effect.

A few mistakes might turn good. Most are likely to be painful to recall and process. But these are the best way to learn.
