Watch: ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’: It’s All in the Framing

Watch: 'Mad Max: Fury Road': It's All in the Framing

We’ve looked, elsewhere, at how the use of point-of view shots made the original Mad Max movies compelling–here, in Vashi Nedomansky’s recent piece, we discover a secret of the success of George Miller’s ‘Mad Max: Fury Road‘: the editing. Or, more specifically, the framing. Each shot is center-framed, meaning that the eye’s intended focal point will always be in the center of the frame. Nedomansky has helpfully added crosshairs to make us see this a bit more clearly, along with a voice-over from John Seale, the film’s director of photography.
