Scene Perspectives of John Carpenter

As a pupil of both Hawks and Hitchcock, filmmaker John Carpenter did the unthinkable of merging the two as a visual stylist and sedentary dramatist in cinema.

The video examines Carpenter's mastery of perspective, boasting how he uses space as a way to show plot points, emphasizing character perspectives in unthinkable angles through the use of static cameras, Steadicam, minimalist lighting and photography as seen in his movies like "They Live (1988)", or "Starman (1984)". Carpenter strips away the different layers in his film to bare out the bones of his complexity.

Watch this study of Carpenter's aesthetic in his filmography.
