Great Lessons in Visual Storytelling From The Twilight Zone

When it comes to knowing how to make movies, we sometimes forget a huge part of telling a story for film is actually the visuals we provide to the audience. What we choose to show or don’t show communicates a message to our viewers and if we’re not thinking about this aspect, our visuals will muddy the overall story.

This great video from YouTuber Jack’s Movie Reviews is a great mini lesson in cinematography done right. Using three stories from The Twilight Zone as his examples, JMR breaks down the shots that helped communicate the story effectively to its audience. If you’re interested in cinematography be sure to watch and let us know in the comments what some of your favourite shots are for visual storytelling.
