Watch: Tony Zhou on F For Fake and How to Structure a Film

“‘Therefore’ and ‘but;’ ‘meanwhile’ and ‘back at the ranch.'” Those are two storytelling axioms to keep in mind, suggests Tony Zhou, when structuring both a film and a video essay. Drawing on Orson Welles’ F For Fake, as well as the words of Alfred Hitchcock and Trey Parker, Zhou demonstrates how the juggling of parallel ideas and story lines are essential to any convincing film or argument.
