  2. “...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.”

  4. Four years after his passing, we still haven't quite caught up to Satoshi Kon, one of the great visionaries of modern film.
