Gotta Love Edgar Wright – Examples of Creative Comedy Directing

Somehow Edgar Wright snuck up on us – from his humble beginnings at Raindance, I’m proud to say – and has become one of the most creative (comedy) directors around. This little video by the always insightful Tony Zhou is a mini-film school…or should I say ‘film challenge’.

Tony nails some important aspects of Edgar’s style, and challenges us to do the same (or better!) when we go out to direct. And it’s not just comedy – take these examples and use them in any genre, just adjust the level.

I’m a little disappointed there’s no examples from Paul, but oh well 😉

Also – the best Ryan Gosling joke ever at 2:19.

I am currently a student in the Raindance Film Degree Masters program. This site comes from the research I am doing as I learn more about film production and distribution.
