Best Of Edgar Wright’s Visual Jokes

Edgar Wright

So you like Edgar Wright as a Director? But how good is he? Take a look at this video essay from Tony Zhou in which Zhou schools comedy directors in how to tell a joke visually, with your camera, by showing clips of all the great visual jokes Wright comes up with. And they are many, and they are good.

While a lot of directors just hold their camera still and let the actors do all the work, Wright tells stories and jokes with his camerawork in a way that is rare in these modern times (although he isn’t completely alone in this. The video has some examples from other directors).
