  2. Edgar Wright - How to Do Visual Comedy from Tony Zhou on Vimeo.

    If you love visual comedy, you gotta love Edgar Wright, one of the few filmmakers who is consistently finding humor through framing, camera movement, editing, goofy sound effects and music. This is an analysis and an appreciation of a director so awesome that Marvel had to fire him on a holiday.

    For educational purposes only. And as always, feel free to comment, like, or tell me it’s not a 747.

    For further reading/viewing, I highly recommend:
