Simple Lines Reveal Masterful Compositions in Iconic Film Scenes

Raymond Thi highlighted the brilliant arrangements of memorable scenes in iconic movies. He places bright pink lines to show how each scene is built. Through simple shapes like triangles and circles, as well as division of halves and thirds, he demonstrates that every frame of a film is truly a blank canvas. Cinematographers use the same compositional guidelines as artists, with an added twist—their work is constantly in motion. When you consider that these stills are just one fraction of what’s involved in the entire production, it’s all the more impressive.
