The Close Ups of Whiplash

Between Frames presents Whiplash – Close Up

One of the reasons that Whiplash has such a strong impact on its audience is the relationship between quick close ups and long wide shots used. The quick close up shots mimic the way that humans see and even remember things and by doing so places the audience onto Andrew Neimann’s drum stool, feeling physically beaten as the drums and mentally beaten as the drummer. This video takes all of the close ups from Whiplash and combines them into one experience, emphasizing this feeling.


Happy 7th Birthday Filmmaker IQ!!!

It’s hard to believe that it’s been another year. Today marks the beginning of our seventh year at Filmmaker IQ!

In the last posting we shared a little bit of our vision moving forward with a brand new free film school. We wanted to be ready for our anniversary but forces outside of our control have slowed the progress and instead of rushing it out, we’re going to try to get as many bugs out of it before releasing it as we can but remember we’re still human.

In the mean time, let us take a moment to again thank you for your patronage. It really means a lot to us that you are watching and reading our filmmaking content. We haven’t gone anywhere, we’re just trying to put together the best filmmaking learning and sharing experience on the web and that takes a lot of time to get right. But it’ll be ready before you know it:


In the mean time, please check out our social networks: FacebookTwitter & Google Plus to see all the content we collect before we consolidate it into the new site.

Regardless of where you’re reading this from – have a HAPPY and SAFE Fourth of July!!!

And here’s to another great year at!

Dennis Hartwig and John P. Hess
