Best Shots of 2021

The Best Shots of 2021 – A Video by Christopher John

WARNING: this video does contain depictions of violence and severe illness that some viewers may find distressing.

Finally completed.

Full honesty: I got a full time job in the last 3 months of 2021 and found time rather short. Gave myself some leniency, allowed time to be a tool, and found a more crafted version of this kind of video. This is once again a labour of love, celebrating a fascinating year for film and a marvellous one for cinematography.

You might find that some of your favourites of the year could be missing. I did not exclude them maliciously, their absence only representing the efforts of editing. Some things just get lost. For example, I have very limited footage for SPIDER-MAN: NO WAY HOME and WEST SIDE STORY. Don’t hate me for not having THAT shot you might be thinking of.

Enjoy and have a good year!
