First and Final Frames
by Jacob T. Swinney.

I love cinema. My main interest goes to independent movies whether they come from Iran, China or Japan. Yes, you are right: American blockbusters are not my friends… While watching movies, I always try to learn as much as possible. What is the opening scene? What about the final shot? Who composed the soundtrack? How is it framed? I find a lot of inspiration, which I try to apply in my photography.

Jacob T. Swinney posted this interesting video on Vimeo: “First and Final Frames”. This five-minute sequence plays the opening and closing shots of 55 films side-by-side. After watching this, I am sure your attention during a projection will be changed forever!
