R.I.P: Every Frame a Painting

If you’re a film maker, there’s a good chance that you’ve come across a channel on YouTube called Every Frame a Painting. Unfortunately for all of us, the creators Tony Zhou and Taylor Ramos have announced that the series has come to an end.

Every Frame a Painting is officially dead. Nothing sinister; we just decided to end it, rather than keep on making stuff.
The existing videos will, of course, remain online. But there won’t be any new ones.
The following is the script for what was supposed to be the final episode, voiced by both Taylor and myself. We were never able to make it. But we think it may be useful to some of you making your own work on the Internet, so we’re publishing it here.

You can read the full article on Medium.com.

The end of Every Frame A Painting is unfortunate, though film makers and film buffs alike can at least take solace in the fact that the channel’s archive will remain active. Here are some of my favorite analyses by Every Frame a Painting:

Akira Kurosawa – Composing Movement
David Fincher – And the Other Way is Wrong
Edgar Wright – How to Do Visual Comedy
Buster Keaton – The Art of the Gag
Martin Scorsese – The Art of Silence
The Spielberg Oner
