1. “...profile shots generally give you the least amount of information about your characters because you cannot make "eye contact" with them and therefore are removed from a more direct form of evaluation.

    However, there are certainly times when you want to keep your characters' intentions or emotions cloaked from your audience: interrogation scenes, standoffs, unreliable narrators and confused characters come to mind.”

  2. What can we learn by examining only the first and final shot of a film? This video plays the opening and closing shots of 55 films side-by-side. Some of the opening shots are strikingly similar to the final shots, while others are vastly different--both serving a purpose in communicating various themes. Some show progress, some show decline, and some are simply impactful images used to begin and end a film.
