Video Montage: Keeping The Distance (Between the Frames)

Last time I shared a video essay and an article that opened up on the whole idea of framing beyond the rule of thirds. Well today I want to continue in that vein with this great little piece by the Between the Frames channel over at Vimeo. As written in the description, “This video explores how director Bennett Miller consistently uses wide shots throughout Foxcatcher to highlight the physical and emotional distance between characters, their situations and how we, the audience relate to them.”

Honestly, the montage of all of these elements might leave you feeling a little cold: but it is well worth watching and seeing how much an effect celever framing can have.
