Just a short post today – there are so many great videos from Every Frame A Painting it’s really hard to pick one to focus on in a post (and expect me to highlight more stuff from Tony Zhou in future, I love his thoughtful breakdowns of film techniques and things that directors employ in crafting new work).

Watching how great directors like David Fincher put a film together is such a great way to learn more about the craft. Look at that scene from Se7en, with the relationships so clearly defined, the power balances, just with camera work. So very good.
