True Detective Matthew McConaughey

HBO’s crime drama True Detective has truly become the show to watch. Aside from the fine acting and great directing – like for this standout 6-minute single-take tracking shot, we’re learning more now about the mythology behind the main storyline. The show centers on two homicide detectives, played by Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson, who are telling their story of how they tracked a ritualistic serial killer seventeen years prior.

In the second episode, the detectives find the journal belonging to murder victim Dora Lange, who wrote about the powerful “The Yellow King.” As it turns out, The Yellow King is inspired by the 1895 anthology of weird tales of horror and madness by Robert W. Chambers called The King in Yellow. In some behind-the-scenes videos for last night’s episode, “The Secret Fate of All Life,” show creator and writer Nic Pizzolatto talks about how this literary reference is part of the mythology for True Detective. You can watch the videos here below.

True Detective Six-Minute Tracking Shot

Tracking shots are truly one of entertainment’s finest moments. A rarity in the business, tracking shots are uncut, and are probably one of the most enjoyable parts of any film or show. For those that don’t know, a tracking shot is one continuous take of a certain scene that isn’t edited for a period of time. It may be difficult to accomplish, but the end result is a truly enjoyable storytelling experience. Alfonso Cuaron and Joe Wright are just a few of the filmmakers who have tracking shots in their works.

For those who have HBO, you may have seen the tracking shot in the most recent episode of True Detective, starring Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson. Hit the jump to see the six-minute scene in its entirety and what director Cary Joji Fukunaga had to say about filming the scene.

Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson in HBO's True Detective

Back in September we saw the excellent first trailer for the upcoming HBO series True Detective, which stars Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson.

The series is of the anthology variety, which means any other seasons that may come will involve different characters and storylines. The first eight-episode season was written entirely by Nic Pizzolatto, and every episode is directed by Cary Fukunaga, who has previously directed Sin Nombre and 2011’s Jane Eyre, and has also been attached to the two-part adaptation of Stephen King’s It.

A new trailer has been released for the show titled “Tested,” in front of the January 12th premiere date. You can watch that plus another trailer released last week that’s titled “Changes” below.
