For my video essay, I decided to focus on the stunt work done in Mission Impossible: Fallout. I used Film Art: An Introduction as a guide to show which type of tracking shots were used and how the production team managed to pull off and capture the stunts done by Tom Cruise.
Wes Anderson's 'The Grand Budapest Hotel' is immediately recognizable by its vibrant pastel color palette. In this film, color plays a central role in marking the changing emotional tones throughout. My video essay addresses the color schemes that mark these different "eras" in the film.
Palo Alto, written and directed by photographer Gia Coppola, demonstrates a distinct style of cinematography reminiscent of formalist photographic technique. Coppola highlights the emotional qualities of her characters through subtle elements, such as light, color, ambient sound, static camera movement, and so forth. This video essay considers the ways in which Palo Alto employs dual color palettes to suggest conflicting and dissonant emotional states.
This is about the use of the genre of comedy and foil characters to lighten the load of a life prison sentence. The two characters face life in prison (for a crime they did not commit), but their clashing of characteristics makes the film into the comedy it is.
