Filmmaking Composition and Framing Tutorials

So this post is as much for my own reference as anything. I really enjoy teaching and helping young filmmakers and crew members learn the art of film. One of the important and underrated aspects of that craft is shot composition.

So I’ve just gone though YouTube and collected a few of the more interesting and useful videos on shot framing and composition. They discuss things like Headroom, “Rule of Thirds” and camera motion.

#1 – General Composition and Framing


#2 – Rule of Thirds


#3 – The Psychology of Camera Movement
