Watch: How to Shoot a Road Movie

The road movie is a frequently tread subgenre, rife with comedic, episodic and dramatic potential. It can also pose a challenge for those seeking a varied mise-en-scene, and in this deconstruction of Dominga Sotomayor’s Thursday Till Sunday, Kevin B. Lee looks at the 83 ways in which the characters are framed in their rather contained environment. It’s a good primer on how to read a scene’s construction, and, from a directorial stand point, how to keep a static environment fresh.
