The Spielberg Face

I don’t usually like to “re-post” items from other blogs, but this was so intriguing I thought I would make an exception.

The Following is a video essay entitled “Essential Viewing: The Spielberg Face” by Kevin B. Lee.  You can find the full transcript at

Now that’s a deep video.   That video really examines how a shot usually isn’t just a shot. Shots tell stories and invoke emotions.  And Spielberg is one of the all time best at telling stories.

Christmas time is almost here and I’ve got a ton of stuff to do.  I still have a lot of shopping and wrapping to finish, not to mention all the the work I have to do for a special Holiday Music Video exclusively produced for The Emmy Winning Blog.

So keep your eyes open for that, and as always you can subscribe to my blog and “like” my Facebook page.

Well, the chestnuts are roasting and I need to check my list twice so  I’ll see you all next time.

    You nailed it about “the shot” and all that goes into it. As you taught me many years ago, if done properly, the viewer has no clue how their own emotions and reactions are being scripted.

    Thanks for sharing. I like that they gave props to AI, which I thought was a great movie.

      A.I. was definitely an under appreciated film. The film drew on many themes and plot elements from the early anime/manga “Tetsuwan Atomu” or “Astro Boy”. The cyber circus and replacing a lost child with a robot are just two of the more obvious similarities.
