  1. Hey jay, liking your videos but I think I know you know you could elaborate a lot more on this stuff.
    Like if your gona talk about composition why not mention other rules/systems such as the Golden Ratio or how you can break this rule by centering your subject in a particular environment like Kubrick or Wes Anderson.
    Lastly, I think it's great you use your own examples and footage (or indy footage for that matter) but it would be nice to also see some more commercial/recognizable examples.

    Just some ideias to help you… or not 😉
