The Tumblr round-up is a compilation of images, links, posters, stories, videos and so on, taken from the Sound On Sight Tumblr account. We simply do not have the man power nor time to write articles on every interesting movie related goody we find, so this is our way of still promoting some of the stuff we love.

Film student Oscar Feiven created this video, editing specific scences from popular movies to showcase a variety of film techniques set in practice.

On the YouTube channel, Feiven lists the movies features as well as the techniques”

Films:

Children of Men, Star Wars Episode IV, Shaun of the Dead, Reservoir Dogs, Lord of the Rings, Atonement, Cowboys and Aliens, Citizen Kane, Mission Impossible, Cloverfield, Inception, Zombieland, Kill Bill Vol. 1, The Other Guys, Limitless, 8 Mile

Techniques:

Establishing Shot, Long Shot, Doggie Cam, Steady cam, Pan, Fast Cut/Rapid Zoom, Low Angle Shot, Crane Up, Dutch Angle, POV, Special Effects, Slow Motion, Panoramic Traveling, Horizontal Traveling, High angle, Tilt, Limitless Zoom, Camera Split

Admittedly, the scope of these “techniques” is pretty broad. “Special Effects” and a “Dutch Angle” don’t exactly belong in the same conversation. But you’ve got to be impressed with this as a project for school. I wonder what grade Feiven got.

Can you think of any major techniques he missed? Though these are all relatively new movies, do you feel like he should have used more classic instances? Or does the fact that so many of the films are from within the last decade simply prove the timelessness of technique?
