Did You Know?
In Mad Max: Fury Road (2015) director George Miller purposely removed frames in scenes to make you feel as anxious as Max.
Tom Hardy as Max Rockatansky
What do you mean ‘removed frames’ ?
It’s called altering the frame rate, which Miller did in every scene, faster or slower, depending on how he liked it and how it fit the scene. It’s not just for Max’s anxiety level or whatever. This is in every Fury Road documentary. A lot of movies do this, just not to the OCD degree that George Miller did in Fury Road.
He also kept the movie [“center framed”]
so that no matter how many cuts you put in you eye would always be looking at the same spot. It allowed him to do quicker cuts without seeming jumpy.
Hands down one of the best movies I ever seen.
