In Praise Of Chairs
A film by Tony Zhou
Filmmaker Tony Zhou, for his Every Frame a Painting series of online video essays, has just released a new short film in praise of chairs.
It’s an interesting premise – how often do you take note of a character’s chair in a film? When you watch this you’ll no doubt see lots of memorable examples that definitely do help to conjure up a sense of character, place or tone.
The video essay might be of more interest to other filmmakers, but there’s enough in there for viewers to appreciate.
