Mad Max: Center FramedJune 3rd, 2015
Mad Max: Fury Road is going to be studied by filmmakers for years. George Miller’s action masterpiece just confirms that he is the genius I always knew he was. He is right up there with Sergio Leone, IMHO. Miller had a very clear vision of what he wanted this film to be. Everything from the editing to the framing of the camera was planned meticulously.
This video by editor Vashi Nedomansky will explain it all. It has a commentary track by cinematographer John Seale, explaining how Miller tried to make sure that the center point of every frame was focused on the action so the audience could always see the essential information they needed to see. Obviously, it worked. No ShakyCam garbage here. Pay attention future (and current) filmmakers. George Miller has a lot to teach you.
