Blending moments of utter tranquility with unforgiving emotional heights, Big Fish & Begonia had me floored in its opening act and kept me hooked until the very end. Unlike most of the content reviewed on this blog, I stumbled upon this film by chance and found myself in shock that it flew under my radar.
So this is the first episode of a new Video Series I’ve been wanting to make for a very, very long time. Piece by Piece is an anime analysis show where I delve into what I consider to be a well produced sequence and figure out how it’s as effective as it is. In this episode, we go deep into the cinematography and visual direction of New Game!! and how it visually presents Aoba’s struggle as a character designer amongst an experienced team. Although this took around a week to produce, this idea has been in the planning stage for months now so I hope you enjoy the video!
