Film Study 1-Juice (1992)


Juice (1992) is one of my all time favorite films. I’ve seen it so many times I can quote most scenes. Heres a bit of film study learning about shots. How they’re composed and why. Ernest Dickerson was the director and Larry Banks was the DP or Cinematographer. You can get the 25th anniversary edition here.
I got some of the shot composition definitions from Studio Binder and made this graphic with shots from the film. Feel free to use it or share (w /credit of course). I already have respect for film, tv, and animation makers, but studying it gives me so much more respect for how difficult it is to make something both beautiful and meaningful. 
Stay tuned…. 

Character 71-74 -Steel, Q, Raheem, and Bishop

This is one of my all time favorite flicks. Ever. It is mostly because of this flick that I went on a mission to buy turntables and become a “bedroom” dj. I’ve seen this movie so many times I could probably recite every line from it. Loved the production, cinematography, acting, and music! I hope Ernest Dickerson makes another drama like this. What was your favorite part of Juice?
