Film School: Composition Cam

An inspiring look at framing, every day.

Composition Cam takes individual frames from well-known feature films and TV shows, and looks at the placement of subject, object, light and camera to create shapes that at the very least dazzle the eye, and often help to tell the story.

They’ve even made an iOS app so that you, too, can find the “symmetry, shape and perspective” in your own shots.

It’s an interesting way to appreciate cinema, and a daily source of inspiration for any filmmaker. Here are some favourites:
