How to shoot an Oscar-contending movie in 29 days and with a limited budget? 

As the day when this year’s Oscars nominations will be revealed approaches, there’s no lack of nominees predictions. Directorial work of Dee Rees, telling a post-war story of two families in Mississippi, is a strong contender to win the first Oscar for streaming service Netflix.

Variety noted that if movies used an Olympics scoring system, Mudbound would get extra points for its degree of difficulty, and you couldn’t agree more. Director Dee Rees made it happen in an extremely tight deadline of 29-day shooting schedule and with a limited budget for a film set in the 1940s with multiple locations. Mary J. Blige, famed for her music, makes her acting debut, joining Garrett Hedlund and Jason Mitchell, the main protagonists. The ambitious project, exploration of ever-relevant themes, terrific acting performances, standing ovation debut at Sundance Film Festival—Mudbound combined the ingredients to make a stir in the media, and now we’re waiting forward to January 23rd to know if it made the list of nominees.

杂志Variety指出,如果该电影使用奥运评分系统,它将在难易度上获得额外的分数,这点是完全赞同的。导演迪·里斯在29天拍摄时间表的最后期限内完成了这部电影的拍摄,预算有限,拍摄于20世纪40年代,有多个拍摄地点。以音乐而出名的玛丽·简·布莱姬首次登台演出,加入了主要主角加勒特·海德伦德和杰森·米切尔的行列。这个雄心勃勃的电影,探索与日俱增的主题,精彩的演技表演,在圣丹斯电影节上的起立欢迎仪式 - 泥土之界结合了各种元素在媒体上引起轰动,现在我们期待着1月23日的到来,来知道它是否获得了提名。
