Few Know How To Move Like Kurosawa

    One of my favourite black and white films, and perhaps one of the most popular movies in film history, is Kurosawa’s Seven Samurai. This video lays out one of the things Kurosawa does best: movement.

    The video, made by the YouTube channel, Every Frame A Painting, highlights the choices he makes in regards to camera movement and movement of his actors.

    The video is thorough in detail, and you should take notes. There’s a lot of techniques you can take from this breakdown of Kurosawa to help you in your own filmmaking. It got me thinking about how movement should be deliberate and purposeful.

    Movement done well can add so much to a story as this video excellently shows.

    Maybe that’s one of the reasons I like Seven Samurai so much. Whatever the case, this breakdown offers some great filmmaking advice for anyone wanting to add something to their film.
