Why Heineken should win an Emmy

Have you ever seen any of the Heineken commercials? More specifically have you ever seen “The Entrance” A commercial so truly awesome that it has it’s own poster, as though it were a movie. In a way it is a short film, action packed and over the top, but still well angled and choreographed. It has everything an award winning movie would have. Amazing Framing Superb Angle’s Angle & Framing Colors Shots (not the alcoholic kind) The director also has a lot of continuous scenes in the commercial, these are my favorite types of scenes. For example take the movie Pride and Prejudice (the one with Keira Knightly) a lot of the scenes, instead of cutting to a new angle of a character, simply glide from one room to the next, with each room showing a different character and a new conversation. If you don’t watch Jane Austen movies, because that’s simply not your cup of tea, heres another example: Kill Bill in the final scenes where Uma Thurman goes after Lucy Liu in the …

The Title Sequence

Monsters Inc. (click above to see the video) The reason I chose this movie to show how much I love the art of the title sequence, is not only because it’s adorable, but also because I love the jazzy music and the fact that it’s animated. The two things that the Monsters Inc. title sequence does best thats also important when making the opening credits, is that it introduced the plot/ theme and it created an entrance for the first scenes of the movie. Lets Break it Down The first thing we see is a mixture of odd shapes in varying sizes, and then we see what seems to be a keyhole. After all of the other shapes rearrange themselves we see that they actually create a door. This is where the plot comes in, the door has a bit of a glow over it for a second and then it opens to show clothes and other thingamabobs. Now we know that it’s a closet. The door closes, and when it reopens there’s no longer …

YOLO: How to

In this music video by The Lonely Island, we get a new twist on the meaning yolo. Yolo stands for you only live once, in a way it’s the new generations way of saying carpe diem. Yolo is a term used when someone is about to, or already has done a stupid or regretable thing. But in this music video yolo is taken literally, and they sing about the precautions you should take because you only have one life and it would be better if you were alive for it (deep). Towards the end the lonely island sings “you oughta look out also stands for yolo” Featuring Adam Levine & Kendrick Lamar WIth this video I bestow upon you the staples of every good music video 1) Triangles Triangles Triangles & Threes Triangles triangulate of course. They help center and frame the singer. In this scene no one is singing but the lyrics are about the chastity belt and the women are pointing to the belt. Which makes this a triangle too. Here is an …

Rhett and Link Visual Review

This is Rhett and Link: Together they make the most interesting rap battle music videos, one of my favorites is the Rap Battle of Manliness. Rhett and Link’s Epic Rap Battle of Manliness Click on the link above to watch the video before you read my Visual Review. It kind of helps to know what I’m talking about if you’ve watched it beforehand. What’s this video about? This video is making fun of how men brag about their manliness, in a way it’s supposed to be ironic because all though in their rap battle they claim to be “the manliest”, they wear preppy clothes and live in cul-de-sac’s where they make “ooey-gooey bars”. The beginning of the video starts off with Rhett cutting the hedge and Link walking up to meet him. Already you can tell that they mean for the audience to view this scene as a battle/competition of sorts, by not only having them meet in the middle like a face off, but also by cutting the screen in half with the hedge. …
