How to Watch Movies From a Deeper Perspective

If you’re a Harry Potter fan, if you love to figure out how to make movies or just love watching them, then you’ll find this video helpful and interesting.

It details how the director of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (Alfonso Cuaron) perfectly portrays the significance of motifs, metaphors and foreshadowing in film. It also shows perfect camera positioning, movement and mise en scene.

Each aspect of how the film was made tells an important part of the story. Not only is the film entertaining, it’s educational for any aspiring filmmaker.

If we just pay a little more attention we may find inspiration and something to further our love and appreciation for great films.
