1. This video essay is about VoiceOver in Martin Scorsese's films; including Goodfellas, The Wolf of Wall Street, Casino and Taxi Driver.

    Scorsese is very liberal and creative with vo. As his movies often deal with the theme of guilt, redemption and violence in all forms, vo can be an efficient way to show various perspectives on the matter and reasons for the choices the characters make.

  3. Martin Scorsese’s penchant for a specific kind of zoom, one where he runs the camera right up to the face of his subject, falls somewhere in between the subtle and the obnoxious. Seduced as we are by the style and panache of Scorsese’s oeuvre, we let this habit of his pass us by unnoticed at first, just another notch on his highly snazzy belt, just another way he makes us feel part of the stylised worlds he constructs. But once you see it, it becomes difficult to unsee it, and you begin looking for it. And when this starts, it quickly becomes apparent just how often he tends to use this kind of zoom.

    - Mean Streets (1973)
    - Taxi Driver (1976)

  4. This video essay is a response to the Every Frame A Painting video, 'The Marvel Symphonic Universe': Every Frame a Painting

    Should film music be original? That's a question that goes right back to the earliest of film sound. But with new technology came changes - and just maybe, the answer to why all Marvel films seem to have forgettable music.

  5. Here's a second, supplementary video we made: vimeo.com/181873016
    And a new Twitter account about temp music we made: twitter.com/SoundsLikeTemp
    Watch Dan Golding's great response video here: youtube.com/watch?v=UcXsH88XlKM

    Off the top of your head, could you sing the theme from Star Wars? How about James Bond? Or Harry Potter? But here’s the kicker: can you sing any theme from a Marvel film? Despite 13 films and 10 billion dollars at the box office, the Marvel Cinematic Universe lacks a distinctive musical identity or approach. So let’s try to answer the question: what is missing from Marvel music?
