The “Snyder School” will look into the process of creating “Army of the Dead” and many other Snyder projects.
Netflix has launched the first episode of its new YouTube series, Snyder School, in which successful filmmaker Zack Snyder takes the viewer through their creative process of making a film. From screenwriting and storyboarding to editing and advanced post-production, the four-part series will be released weekly on the Netflix Film Club YouTube Channel.
Snyder School is the first in a Netflix series titled How To Make Movies. The larger series will include mini-shows similar to Snyder School that delve into the process and art of filmmaking. Netflix has not disclosed which other filmmakers may host their own series in the future.
The first episode of Snyder School focuses on the thought process behind the opening title sequence of the director’s latest film, Army of the dead. Discussing narrative foreshadowing, text placement, stylistic decisions, concept art, programming, and more, the 13-minute video has Snyder using footage from his films for reference. Despite mixed reviews, Army of the dead contains many of Snyder’s usual stylistic choices that he used in other films, such as Justice League by Zack Snyder, Steel man, and 300, which makes it a solid blueprint to use in teaching anyone interested in learning more about what makes a Snyder movie unique.
