Here’s a Crash Course in Visual Comedy, Focused on the Work of Edgar Wright


Here’s a video essay made by movie fan Tony Zhou, in which he dissects the techniques that make up director Edgar Wright’s unique visual style and demonstrates a bunch of ways to tell a story visually with a comedy movie. It’s something that a lot of today’s top comedy directors neglect in favor of jokes and performances, and the video essay calls them out too by comparing visually inactive clips from their movies with attention-grabby clips from Wright’s.
