Nine students from Visual and Media Arts Professor and Chair Jonathan Wacks’s class “Directing the Feature Film” recently visited the set of Larry David’s HBO movie Clear History, which is shooting in Essex, Massachusetts. The students met the Curb your Enthusiasm star, observe director Greg Mottola’s work with the crew and actors, and listen to a presentation from producer Monica Levinson about the movie’s production issues.
David invited the students onto the set, where he was shooting a scene with Gone Baby Gone actor Amy Ryan. He regularly checked in with the students to give insight into his process. Students were also invited to meet There’s Something About Mary Director Peter Farrelly, who has a small role in Clear History.
