‘The Art of Steadicam’ is a love letter to tracking shots in cinema and television

Goodfellas

Effective shot composition is a key component of filmmaking, sometimes resulting in the only interesting aspect of a bad film, and elevating a good film into a great one. Good cinematography, however, unfortunately goes unnoticed a lot of times, no matter how well it enhances a movie. Larry Wright of Refocused Media, however, has turned the spotlight back on camera work, with a video entitled The Art of Steadicam, which celebrates long takes from a variety of movies and tv shows, from Boogie Nights to The Shining to Good Night and Good Luck to Atonement and many, many more. The video can be seen below, and a full list of the movies used can be found here.
