Not sure if you have noticed, but I like to point out little inspirations that I find out in the world. Most times, these are examples of interesting, well done, and effective videos.
This first video I stumbled across today. It is very clean video due to its minimal nature. This style could easily be applied to educational video.
As for this second video, I felt the creators took advantage of music to help move the video. The music dictated the pacing of the video and not the other way around. This is a really well done commercial.
Now the best for last. I got to see James Bond Spectre this weekend. This opening sequence is one single tracking shot. No cuts. Just amazing how the choreographed the camera movements to make this happen. How does one fluid take make this scene feel to you? The use of the shot switching from up close to overhead makes me feel like I am a fly there, observing the moment.
Always keep your eyes open, you never know what you might find.
