First and Final Frames

Edited by Jacob T. Swinney

Here’s a rather lovely short film made of the first and final frames from dozens of feature films, laid side by side on screen.

It’s fascinating to see the different shots – some are very similar, some very different. Tones change, colours change, character emotions change.

The short is mesmerising and interesting in its own right, but if you’re a writer or filmmaker it’s a bit of a masterclass of introduction and end scenes.

Take a look at the First and Final Frames Vimeo page for a full list of movies used.
