Video Breaks Down The Different Kinds Of Cuts Used In Movies

Video: RocketJump Film School put together this really great video that shows us the different kinds of cuts and transitions that filmmakers use in their movies.

2008's Cloverfield Is Getting A Sequel. Here's The Trailer

Yeah, Cloverfield came out all the way back in 2008. It doesn’t feel that long ago, but the records don’t lie. Some might think that’s a little too long to wait for a sequel, but maybe we’re ready for another flick full of shaky-cam jump scares.

The 12 Steps That Basically Every Hero In A Movie Goes Through

Video: It’s pretty simple even if we don’t want to acknowledge it: movies are pretty much set up all the same and a hero’s journey roughly follows a pretty universal 12-step process. Or at least that’s what Iskander Krayenbosch thinks in his animation The Hero’s Journey. He deftly utilises characters from popular movies to prove his point for each step.


How A Giant Lift Harnesses Gravity To Move Boats

You’re probably aware that normal elevators make use of counterweights, which reduce the amount of energy it takes to move people up and down skyscrapers with slightly frightening speed. But when it comes to moving hundred-ton boats, a little more precision is required.


Google's New Family Plan For Music Is A Damn Good Deal
