Video: The 100 Most Memorable Shots In Cinema Over the Last 100 years

This short supercut by Jacob T. Swinney was an official selection of the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival. Here is Swinney’s note about the film:

A journey through the past 100 years of cinema–the most memorable shot from each year (in my opinion). While many of these shots are the most recognizable in film history, others are equally iconic in their own right. For example, some shots pioneered a style or defined a genre, while others tested the boundaries of censorship and filmgoer expectations. If anything, I want this video to be a reminder as to why we all love cinema so much.

    In my enthusiasm, I forget that you have just shared this and are not the creator of the piece. Doh!
    Thanks anyway. And my question about the music still stands.

    I am astonished you have only had one comment here, and it’s not even a real comment.

    This is just beautiful. I had to watch it again immediately after watching it the first time just to re-immerse myself in its hypnotic procession of colour and tone and memory and emotion. Thought-provoking and stirring and a really lovely selection of films with a couple of exceptions although I accept their inclusion may be no indicator of artistic merit. Beautiful nonetheless.

    What’s the piece of music that you have used? I love how it syncs so perfectly with your last shot.

    Well done, and thank you.
