  1. Hi, i'm a student working on my masters thesis. I'm wondering if you publish content anywhere else in any other form (written work)? I'm interested in citing some of these ideas.

  2. Enjoyed this, but it would have been more useful to have the film list rather than the song list.  Not sure why you added the song list at all actually.

  3. It sure would have been nice if you'd actually discussed how to block and compose shots. And how to move actors and camera from shot to shot to tell a story. As promised in the title. Instead of providing a little movie-making history lesson without detail or context.

  4. Very good video, I found it very informative and I enjoyed it very much, I look forward to watching some of your other videos.

  5. great video, one nitpick – pay more attention to image formats – couple of images were stretched (for example the shot from American psycho), otherwise it's a very professional video essay!

  6. I will support you on Patreon, YouTube, and every where you want my support. Love from aspiring Cinematographer.

  7. Thank you, Chris, for such a wonderful class… because of people like you, people like me can learn the craft of filmmaking even when they cannot afford a film school… and keep their dreams of becoming filmmakers alive… thank you once again… cheers!!!

  8. Fantastically inspirational! Thank you for creating and sharing this- such a great explanation of cinematic composition!

  9. What an incredible video! I absolutely loved this and learned so much. This has to be one of my favorite videos on the entire internet

  10. I like the two videos Fargo relationships and this video but is framing and composition the same or they different

  11. Seen this like five times, and keep coming back to it. Not pretentious, just basic facts based on what we see in front of us

  12. I have to revisit this every once in a while. Simply, a fantastic essay into a deeper look into the subtle (and not so) details in film. Wonderful job!

  13. after couple of years of watching this particular video, i feel as if i learned stuff, which i was clueless back then. thank you Criswell

  14. FUCKING FINALLY!
    No SKILLSHARE-BULLSHIT at the end!
    Classic ending credits with music! Perfectly balanced as all things should be.

  15. This to me is one of the things that makes Kubrick stand out so much. So many movies are full of images that seem unintentional in the composition, where his can be stopped at virtually any frame to reveal a well-composed shot.

  16. Is it possible to have subtitles for the essay? Or the essay itself? Your work is really informative and it would help a lot with my project.

  17. When you were speaking about how framing composition isn't just about frames, I instantly thought about the Mommy ''frame widening'' moment. So happy that you showcased it here!
