Recommending…Every Frame a Painting

Anyone with even a passing interest in film should check out Every Frame a Painting, a YouTube channel set out like a university course with sort of video lessons, but much less dull than that sounds. Each episode focuses on a different part of the film-making process, or maybe a specific director and their style, it’s all very short and simple to follow, and cut with loads of film clips to make the videos both fascinating and entertaining. Unbelievable news.

Some favourite episodes include this episode on how the best visual comedy is created (includes a cracking explanation of why British comedies rule over their American cousins), or this one about Chuck Jones, the legendary Looney Tunes artist.
