Although colour can have a huge impact on the overall aesthetic of a movie scene ultimately it's the rules of composition that determine how dynamic, memorable and beautiful a shot can be. Some movies have iconic shots in which composition is used perfectly whilst others make full use of its power throughout the entire movie and although the sets, acting and narrative have to be good to make a good movie they wouldn't be half as good if they weren't all wrap up together in a well composed frame.

To reveal just how much thought goes into composing a single shot Raymond Thi from Composition Cam has come up with this clever series in which he uses simple lines and shapes to prove what a powerful impact it can have.
