an actor's look

Film Each year, film lecturer Jason Mittell asks his students to remix films and apply different narrative. Not parodies exactly, these aren't The Shining remix over and over, but as he says "designed to teach through practice how the practice of editing for chronology, juxtaposition, and tone conveys story".

The results are excellent and suggests the group has impeccible taste including as they do new versions of Away From Him, Adaptation, The Prestige and the tv show Pushing Daisies.

Even though most of them don't work unless you've seen the original source material, it's a useful example of how much narrative and expositional information can be conveyed in an actor's look to just off camera.
