For my video essay I decided to take a scene from the movie 10 Cloverfield Lane, which I watched this week. I chose this movie for two reasons. 1) This movie has an extremely high rating on Rotten Tomatoes and I am a big fan of Rotten Tomato reviews 2) John Goodman is one of my favorite actors-he can play any role.
In an attempt to become a movie director over the course of a single week I read the post on “How to Read a Movie,” and watched the Top 20 Cinematic Shots video, and Camera Angles and Techniques video, which were both insightful as to specific techniques that are normally passed over by the audience but they are able to grab and keep the attention of the audience like no other!
Below is the link to my video essay! Enjoy!
(I also thoroughly apologize if I am not a Hollywood director after only one week of video crítíqúé!)
