      :o well done for guessing that she was actually running backwards - because it was actually a mirror!!!!!!!

      Hey! Coming from a photographer, I think the mirror scene was done using a tilt shift lens. It’s a popular way to photograph mirrors without having the camera seen in the mirror.

    For the mirror shot, I think they just started zoomed in and zoomed out as she approached it, revealing it's in a mirror. The tricky part is doing it at the same rate she approaches the mirror in order to make sure she stays the same size

  • jose javier montero
    jose javier montero 4 days ago

    The girl in the mirror doesn't seem to be a mirror, it might be a LCD or a green screen showing the first shot, and then you just shot the second one opening the cabinet.

    instead of milk thy use white glue for cornflakes... doesn't make them soggy and they stay on top. Also, the drips are slower which helps capturing them sharper on photo

    with the mirror shot, there were spacers in the hinges so that it was at an angle because if it didn't have the spacers, the camera would have to be farther over to keep it out of the shot, but the hallway would not be straight in front of the viewing angle

  • Nestor Camacho
    Nestor Camacho 11 days ago

    My guess is that the mirror scene was done using a zoom lens. Zoomed to the mirror while she was running and opening up as she was getting closer to the mirror :-)

    In BTS's mic drop music video when Jungkook is dancing while singing"did you see my bag" the mirror behind him is supposed to show the camera man aswell but it doesn't
    And it doesn't seem like much but it's so cool

    I think you should do a video on just the filming techniques of Stanley Kubrick. He had a way of portraying a lot in a scene with his filming style.

    I'm not a filmmaker but I do like to consider myself a graphic artist and one day I would like to be a game designer. I watch videos like this to understand how these kind of shots are created and why they look the way they do. This can be translated into game design by following similar methods and styles of thought. Video game designers could greatly benefit from taking more time to study film making techniques.
