The Art of the Close-Up with Edgar Wright

Edgar Wright reveals his secrets on his use of close-ups, specifically referencing his acclaimed comedy Shaun of the Dead. Another example that Wright discuses is from his film Hot Fuzz, where he uses close-ups to "take the boring parts of the job and glamourise them.

One of the things Wright discusses is the way he uses close-up montages of mundane activities in Shaun of the Dead to give weight to a final, close-up montage. He names James Cameron, Martin Scorsese and Robert Rodriguez as experts on the craft of using close-ups.
