Video Essay: “How to Do Visual Comedy” – Zhou

Continuing my new series of resource links – to video essays, cinematographer interviews, how-to tips and the like – today I want to share with you another video essay: this time it is a clip created by a great cinephile by the name of Tony Zhou. He has a great cache of stuff – and I will definitely be sharing a bunch of his material over the coming months.

In this particular example from 2014, Zhou walks us through the comedy styling of Edgar Wright. And as noted in a previous blog post, “… [this is] a fun and informative video essay, which not only celebrates the work of director Edgar Wright, but explores how he uses cinematography to take advantage of as many comedic opportunities to as possible.”
