Here’s today’s handout on the infamous Hays Code (2 links there!)… you don’t need to do anything particular with it yet other than be aware of it. We’ll be revisiting it after the October break as we move into the realms of regulations and institutions. As mentioned, strictly adhering to it would have prevented films like The Godfather being made, and also goes a long way into explaining certain narrative decisions made during the ‘golden era’ of Hollywood film.
Scripts for Wednesday… and don’t overlook the power of sound (as opposed to music) for your productions. 🙂
PS: Please note the correct spelling… It is “Hays” not “Hayes“. Soz, my bad.
