1. How do you emphasize to the audience that something is important? Well, you could always cut to a close-up, but how about something subtler? Today I consider ensemble staging — a style of filmmaking that directs the audience exactly where to look, without ever seeming to do so at all. NO SPOILERS.

    Eight Ways to Get the Audience to Look at Someone/Something:
    1) Let Them Speak
    2) Make Them Brighter or Bring Them Closer
    3) Let Them Move (Especially Hands or Eyes)
    4) Put Them in the Center of Frame
    5) Turn Them Towards the Lens
    6) Separate Them from the Group
    7) Isolate Them by Moving the Camera
    8) Have Other People Look at Them

  2. I was looking through the Project Apollo Archive (flickr.com/photos/projectapolloarchive/) and at one point, I began clicking through a series of pics quickly and it looked like stop motion animation. So, I decided to see what that would look like without me having to click through it. Enjoy!
