Fiction and Fantasy

Thoughts and excerpts from the mind of Jeannette Jonic

April Recommendations (2 of 4): Weight of Cinema

I first noticed Weight of Cinema when they put out an incredible video series analyzing Avatar: The Last Airbender‘s writing and cinematography. It was well-edited, the voiceover/script work was phenomenal, and the carefully-crafted and loving analysis was a delight to behold. I’d find myself eagerly awaiting each new entry in the four-part series, and I felt a profound melancholy when it was finished!

I just finished watching their three-part series on Peter Jackson’s The Lord of the Rings trilogy’s themes and emotional impact.

I see they have a podcast too, and while I haven’t checked that out yet, I certainly intend to in the future.

If you enjoy the kinds of content I put out, you’ll enjoy Weight of Cinema’s eloquent video essays for sure.

But if you’re not really feeling checking out someone different (aw, it’s okay, I’ll keep you company!), you might find this series I did on the six elements of a story an interesting read.
