Akira Kurosawa: Capturing Movement

Here is a great video that attempts to analyse the work of a master mind and one of the most important visual story tellers in cinema history. It attempts well.


Tony Zhou carefully breaks some down scenes from Kurosawa classics and explains how the Director played with movement. Not restricting himself to the movement of characters but also the motion in the background and the foreground which gives us a deeply moving cinematic sensation. Every shot, every scene and every sequence was carefully designed by Kurosawa to affect the audience mind in a way that he wanted. Throwing some light upon this, the video also gives a little brief on Kurosawa’s editing style.
