Luc Besson And FIA Have Made A Nail Biting Child Road Safety Film

Titled Save Kids Lives, the film has been released to coincide with International Walk to School Day. According to WHO, 500 kids are killed every day in road crashes around the world. Watch the film and see some of the risks for yourself.

A Short Film Shot Through A Water Droplet Is Hauntingly Beautiful

An iPhone, a 5 yen coin, and a drop of water. That’s all Japanese designer Dan Tomimatsu needed to create his haunting surrealistic short film, O (eau), shot entirely through a makeshift “water lens.”

A Movie's First And Last Scene, Compared Side-by-side (NSFW)

We’ve seen film editor Jacob T. Swinney juxtapose the first and last shot of a movie before. Now he’s back again, comparing how 70 more movies open and close. Obviously there may be some vague-ish spoilers in some of the closing shots and a few of the scenes in this cut are NSFW but it’s really interesting just to see how movies start and wrap up their stories, visually.

10 Awesome Bloopers That Actually Made It Into Movies

Video: There is so much preparation that goes into a movie — so many takes captured of any given scene, and so much effort that goes into the camera work, and so much practice for the performances but sometimes things don’t go as planned. Mistakes happen, lines are forgotten, and bloopers are created. But sometimes those happy accidents end up being better than what the filmmakers originally intended.

Here Are 5 Alternate Movie Endings That Would Have Been Way More Bad Arse

Sometimes movies change their original, director intended endings because the audience gets too attached to characters or studios want to leave room open for sequels or we all just want a teeny bit of happiness after we sit in a dark room for two hours. But some endings shouldn’t change because the alternate endings were better than what we saw. Here are a few movies with bad arse alternate endings.

How Visually Similar Indiana Jones 4 Was To The Original Movies

Very few people enjoyed Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Actually, I’m not sure if there was a single person who ever watched an Indiana Jones movie before who liked the movie. But as Pablo Fernandez Eyre points out in this video comparison, there were a lot of similarities between the last Indiana Jones and the first three.

How Movies Cleverly Tilt The Camera Angle To Influence What We Feel

The Dutch angle is a film technique where the camera is tilted a bit so that the shot looks purposely off. What’s happening in the shot is not parallel to the frame, it’s at an angle instead. The Dutch angle heightens tension and is disorientating and can make us uneasy (to match the character’s uneasiness). It’s an interesting technique that can also be terribly abused.

The Point-Of-View Shots From Films By The Coen Brothers

The Coen brothers are true filmmakers who employ a certain amount of mastery and art and variety to their work that few directors can match. Joel and Ethan Coen are so good at what they do that they can make any sort of film all sorts of watchable. Here’s something that could connect their movies stylistically though: the point-of-view shot.

Back To The Future's DeLorean Was Almost A Refrigerator

Back to the Future is basically the perfect movie. But it totally could have been just a bad ’80s movie if a few things went differently. Like if Eric Stoltz never got replaced with Michael J. Fox, if the movie had used a refrigerator as the time machine instead of the DeLorean or if the movie was called Spaceman from Pluto instead (seriously). All those things could have happened!

How Movies Break The Fourth Wall And Why They Do It

Video: When movies break the fourth wall it’s always a little jarring. Like when you see someone you don’t know try to talk to you and you look behind your shoulder to see if it’s really you they want. But when characters express that awareness of being in their world to you, it can get pretty fun! For comedic purposes and dramatic purposes, it’s an interesting tool that filmmakers use.
