FilmGrab: A Homage to Great Cinematography


Keir Dullea as Dr. Dave Bowman in 2001: A Space Odyssey, one of many beautiful screenshots found at FilmGrab

FilmGrab has possibly the best repertoire of cinematic screenshots available on the internet. The blog has been going for a long time now, meaning that the collection of beautiful cinematography has grown from a great way to waste time into a significant study into what cinematography means a film’s outcome.
Anybody interested in framing, lighting, mise en scène and the analysis of visual storytelling can spend hours on this fantastic blog. Here’s a personal favourite: Geoffrey Unsworth and John Alcott’s work for Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey

  1. Wow! Thanks for this source. I will certainly look for screenshots there.
    I wanted to say I’ve nominated your blog for a Liebster Award. 🙂
