How do you shoot a scene and permeate the audience’s psyche? What makes a scene so realistic that you can watch it over and over again?
Martin Scorsece is one of director’s who has been able to bring out such level of realism in his work. While he has been criticized for the violent content in his films, he has successfully been able to create hyper creative, and sometimes violent, images by use of ultra quick shots, unsettling angles, and zooms in his work.
Here is a shot-by-shot look at a scene in one of his earlier movies, Cape Fear, and how is expert camera work is brought out beautifully.
