Time for a new regular-ish feature to add to the site – What Is…?
Basically, every now and again I will write a post about a particular piece of film terminology. Now this isn’t in any way my attempt to say I know more than anybody else, because, quite frankly, I know no more than any of the fantastic blogs I follow (or follow me), let alone the hundreds of others I haven’t discovered yet.
However, I hope people will find this feature informative. Many may already know everything I cover, but some people may just learn a thing or two, which would be fantastic. I know I’m going to learn a hell of a lot; much of the stuff I will cover won’t come straight out of my brain, but will need some research, so I guess you could say these posts will be as much for me as anyone else!
Sometimes the posts will be about relatively simple terminology, such as a particular type of camera shot, but sometimes it’ll be about more in-depth things that will need a little further explanation. Either way, I hope anyone reading it will take something from it, and I may well call upon other bloggers to help if they have certain areas of expertise.
So here’s the first instalment of ‘What is…?’ – What is… a MacGuffin?
