Tarkovsky’s Revenant Relevance

By | Creative, Video Marketing | No Comments

Filmmaker Andrei Tarkovsky is a favorite of many cinematographers. His films favor the visual aspect of the story, often to an extreme. So many of his shots are considered iconic that it is common to see at least one in any given film. This video documents a number of these shots as they turned up in The Revenant. While a few look like a stretch comparison to me, many are dead nuts duplicates of Tarkovsky’s work. Imitation…flattery…


At L7 Original, we are more than willing to steal iconic shot ideas from the best that the visual world has to offer, all in the work of presenting our ideas and energies to the viewer. Come see what we can do for your video production needs in San Diego.
