New Clip From Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs 2 Is Full Of Tricks

This clip is cinematic in the truest sense of the word. The camera work is buzzing with ideas, the lighting and design are also pulling their weight, and the sound and music are brilliantly conceived too. Perhaps some of the timing felt a little off – and that’s no small thing – but I hope the whole film is at least this smartly put together.

Note the little camera move with the first push of focus at the start when they all turn their heads, for example. That really sells the “tangibility” of what we’re looking at, and pulls this out of an artificial CG world.

And then the use of both a specific camera position and the edge of the frame at the bottom to delay the reveal of Barry’s eyes – first to us, then to the characters.

I could go on. It’s just a very nicely conceived little sequence, thought up in superbly cinematic terms.
