One Perfect Shot Twitter Account Reduces Movies Into a Single, ‘Perfect’ Frame

oneperfectshot

Have you ever watched a movie and wondered what single frame could perfectly summarize the entire film? Well, Geoff Todd did and his resulting creation is One Perfect Shot, a Twitter account that does just that.

As you can see from some of the examples, the results are great, and go to show just how much work has to go into an entire production, let alone a single frame. It also can’t be easy to narrow down movies like Ghostbusters and The Temple of Doom into a single frame, so kudos are in order for Todd.

Take a look at the tweets shared below and be sure to give One Perfect Shot a follow to keep up with future posts.

    Apparently the most important aspect of good cinematography is a fog machine.

    Can’t say I disagree, really.

    No. :]

  • @JacksonCheese

    As a photographer, who has dabbled in filmmaking, yes. And I find this very interesting.

  • Sean Walsh

    I think the shot of Mr. White standing over Mr. Pink, their guns pointed at each other, as the camera pulls back to Mr. Blonde’s point of view, actually summarizes the feel of Reservoir Dogs more accurately.

    But that’s just me.

    It happens to me all the time. Many a times I see these films and marvel at the cinematography and beauty of that particular scene. I screen capture them and make them my wallpaper and even save them. This is random but I have screencaptured “Spirited away” and “Howl’s moving castle” more than most films and both these films are animated films by Miyazaki.
