Orson Welles and the forgotten art of Deep Focus

Orson Welles and the forgotten art of Deep Focus

I’ve recently seen the famous Orson Welles movie “Touch of Evil”, and I couldn’t help but notice how well he handles the “deep focus” technique.

    Zootopia (US title) or Zootropolis (EU title) is a comedy released by Disney during the first half of 2016. The movie was widely succesful and received praise by both critics and audience.

      The Disaster Artist, understanding the author of “The Room”

            The preview of the teaser of the trailer

            About a week ago the trailer for the 2016 movie Batman vs Superman was “released”, and apparently in the USA you could get tickets to watch the trailer at the IMAX, exclusively. In order to promote this trailer a video was shown on the Internet, of just a few seconds, showing the characters’ logos and […]
