Why I Love Every Frame a Painting’s Visual Comedy

Every Frame a Painting is a brilliant video essay channel on YouTube that breaks down everything from different directorial styles to the thought process of the editor. They’re sleek, interesting and entertaining to watch.

One of my all time favourites though has to be Edgar Wright- How to Do Visual Comedy.

The video is a unique essay about how to enhance your film’s comedic elements by creating visual comedy with your camera angles and your editing.

It challenges its audience to rely on other elements of filmmaking apart from dialogue and it’s brilliant.
