Every Frame a PaintingÂ is one of my favorite YouTube channels. Tony Zhou breaks down filmmaking techniques in ways even us non-filmmaker types can understand. And it’s fascinating.
Here’s a short example called ‘Who Wins the Scene?’
I’ve been thinking about how I can apply some of the visual techniques he discusses to my fiction. This week, whenever I get bogged down in the plot details or the minutia of my writing, I’ve been asking myself ‘Who is going to win this scene, and how am I going to show it?’
Anyway, Every Frame a Painting is wonderful and you should subscribe to the channel.
