This brilliant video-essay by Youtuber The Nerdwriter dissects the works of director David Fincher, explaining how he marries the movement of the actors in a scene and the movements of the camera together in order to give the audience a more lasting connection with the people and events on screen. Using examples from across Fincher’s back catalogue we are shown how this subtle trick is being used by the director to subconsciously alter the mood of the audience. Any fan of Fincher’s will appreciate the level of detail the notoriously perfectionistic director puts into his work, but this technique is something anybody interested in film could see in action to understand.
