The Last Shot Is The Most Important

    When learning how to make movies, you’ll learn none of the shots are as important as the first and last ones. And out of those two, the last shot takes the crown.

    As the video points out, the last shot is the impression the audience takes with them. Wasting that moment can result in having a less effective movie. Make the last shot really count.

    It was also inspiring to watch instances where things come full circle, that is, when the last shot is similar to the first shot. I like the example from Gone Girl they use.

    You start with a shot revealing key information to the story, but the audience doesn’t know this until the end shot shows the same thing again. This video shows the importance of a powerful closing shot and how we should be creative with the impression we want the audience to have.
