Coffee & Content: Directing Lessons from "The Graduate" & How to Do the "Loki" Portal Effect

Happy Sunday Creative Army!

Have you had a creative weekend so far? I have some content here for you that is sure to get the creative juices flowing, so grab your coffee and let's dive in.

First up, our friends over at StudioBinder have put together a great video talking about the directing choices that brought iconic ending of The Graduate to life. Specifically, this video breaks down director Mike Nichols' choices regarding cinematography, sound design, and contrast and how these elements all work together to make one of the most memorable movie endings of the last 50 years.

Next up, Film Riot has put together an epic tutorial about how to master the portal effect in the Marvel/Disney+ show Loki. They set up everything from how you need to frame the footage, to how to create the effect in After Effects. This epic visual effect is a great way to add production value to your sci-fi/fantasy projects.
