Video – Silence in Writing and Film

We all may love witty dialogue and banter, but sometimes it’s better to just shut up and remember that film is a visual medium. If applied correctly, a few moments of silence can enact emotion that pages of dialogue would just clutter up.

In this video from Fandor, they explore powerful movie scenes and all they convey without the use of dialogue. Silence can speak volumes, and the right visual can pack a much bigger punch than a line of dialogue is capable of.

Certainly something to keep in mind.
