Last semester, JD had an eye opening lecture about eye-direction in a sequence/shot or demo reel.
I watched Snatch today. I'm such a big fan of the movie I thought I'd share what I've seen:
One of my favorite sequences of the movie is the 'chase'. I frame-by-framed it and noticed how briliantly this sequence was executed.
Check out the eye direction (it's a bit messy :D ):
Here is the original:
Notice the zig zaggy change of direction, to make it feel like a chase, this is too cool:

Finally, check out the line of action of those cuts. I watched the movie several times before but never noticed it until now
I don't think Guy Ritchie could have picked better then Mirwais' music for this montage. It's my dream to one day animate to music.
Thanks for reading.
