How Filmmakers Make You See What They Want

In a beautifully crafted way, this video explores the creative ways composition is used in popular movies and notes specific techniques. It was a visual treat to see the history of composition and why it’s so critical to a movie.

The video also makes a case for how composition is a technical and artistic expression of the filmmakers to direct your eyes. The narrator even goes as far to say that composition is filmmaking’s most fundamental principle.

And as the video continues, the narrator makes a case for why this is, and includes how filmmakers are able to influence the viewer’s eye towards a certain spot.

What I love about this video is his examples are well laid out and seamlessly woven together in a creative way to establish his case, making it almost a testament to composition itself.
