HBO Max Orders Docuseries ‘One Perfect Shot’

Ava DuVernay to Narrate

Ava DuVernay is partnering with HBO Max and the individuals behind Twitter’s One Perfect Shot account to create a half-hour documentary series of the same name designed around the actual act of filmmaking — the technology and behind-the-scenes work that goes into making movies. The logline: “One Perfect Shot” will look at an iconic shot from different films, with the directors of those films walking viewers through a detailed breakdown of how it came to be. Each episode will feature a different director walking through the scene in 360 moments that allow viewers to join an immersive exploration of moviemaking,

DuVernay, who directed “A Wrinkle in Time,” and “Selma” and created “When They See Us” on Netflix, is set to narrate and executive produce the series. 

The One Perfect Shot Twitter account, which has just over 560,000 followers, was started in 2013 by filmmaker Geoff Todd.
