"Words. Words. Words."
One of the few lines from Shakespeare I remember (Hamlet, Act 2, Scene 2). I haven't seen the play, but I've seen lots of movies.
I was browsing through the selections in the sidebar (over there ------->), and clicked on Jim Emerson's "Scanners" (which is a wonderful blog you should be regularly frequenting--please, use me as your portal!), and today, he had two wonderful video's by a YouTube subscriber who animates dialogue from movies. Now, I'm about to launch a feature that showcases classic scenes (or at least good ones---well, ones I like!) from movies, but I just fell in love with what this fellow Chrissilich is doing, and think he's a bloody genius. You may or may not agree, but it's at least fun to watch in order to make that determination...and that's the trick of movie-making.
Here he takes on a scene from a film I didn't particularly like much--I like it more for having seen this, and for that I'm very grateful:
Here's a bit of "V for Vendetta:"
Now, my plug: Be on the look-out for a new department called "Don't Make A Scene!"
Because words matter.
