It was such a pleasant surprise to find this gem of a movies two days ago. “How I Live Now” is a 2004 British film based on the novel of the same name by Meg Rosoff. The characters were immensely compelling, and the story was utterly unique in its genre. Half way through the movie I cared about the characters so much that I knew i would be devastated if one of them were kill. That’s captivating. If you haven’t seen it and you have Netflix, Watch it!
Here are some storyboards I did from this incredible film.
POV (Point of View), despite what most people thinks, is not a direct eye contact between the actor and the camera (or in other words, the audience). There’s nothing subjective about the POV shot. However, it’s not all together objective either. It’s a little bit of bother. The view is in that very blind spot almost right next to the actress’s cheeks. POV is slightly off of the subject’s visual path, so that the audience remain an unseen observer with in the film.
