Fourteen Actors Acting

I really like this video piece from the New York Times, Fourteen Actors Acting. It’s a look at classic screen types and I love the style – it’s almost like a cool black and white photo shoot, except it’s moving video, if that isn’t a contradiction in terms. Which it sort of is, but you know what I mean, it has that oh so cool B&W studio portraits of an actor feel to it, except it’s moving images, and the photography, directed by Solve Sundsbo, is beautifully crisp and clear and the lighting just right for each scene, go and check it out.
