“Black Bear” writer and director Lawrence Michael Levine says he “experimented with a new technique” while writing his drama starring Aubrey Plaza and Sarah Gadon — which resulted in it going absolutely bats— insane in the second half.
“I experimented with a new technique of writing which was, instead of outlining the whole movie and mapping it out very specifically, I meditated and let images come to me and I put those images on cards,” Levine told TheWrap’s Steve Pond at Sundance. “It was a less conscious and more spontaneous writing process. All those twists and things kind of surprised me while I was writing it.”
