Idea #50 - The Craft Behind Succession
Following the event of Succession bagging the Emmys for the best drama, we thought it would be a fitting time to study a detailed breakdown of the show - and why it deserved its big win.
So today we watched The Craft Behind Succession and learned how both the framing and the scripting was masterfully designed to fit the elements and characters involved.
From calculating the perfect pause between sentences and reactions to build tension, to character blocking in frames to portray conflict, irresolution, and everything in between - this dark comedy series had every element a good show needs.
Succession perfectly encapsulates the politics within the families of multinational corporations while also making the audience laugh in the face of dire circumstances, and we are absolutely here for it!
