Edgar Wright and the Art of Close-Ups

Most of us are familiar with Edgar Wright's cinematic handwriting; tongue-in-cheek humor, fast-paced zooms, and whip-pans. Here Wright explains his use of distinguished close-ups.

  1. This was fun to watch. I feel like he was just kind of speaking off the cuff, but I like that stream of consciousness thinking. Really cool to see his first real film in there too.

  2. My favorite concept is entering a scene late and leaving early. I think of all the times when my imagination compresses time differently than what ends up in-camera; the stuff Wright says you'll cut out 90% of.
