The Eyes Of Orson Welles

This award-winning film by Director Mark Cousins focuses on the drawings and sketches of Orson Welles and the influence they had on his many films. Mark's commentary, which features throughout the movie, was recorded at Offbeat in 2017. Mark enjoys the studio atmosphere and feels comfortable recording at the studio. Most of the commentary was therefore recorded in just a few hours in a single take. He came back to the studio to retake a very short segment prior to the final editing which was done by Timo Langer in London.
