Alan Rickman in slow motion

Postby Jim Maloney » September 26th, 2012, 2:15 pm

You know, there's a lot of talk in magic about directing attention, making things seem important, etc. A lot of that has to do with body language, and in that regard, there's a lot to be learned from actors. And what better way to study than to watch a masterful actor in super slow motion.

If you have ever seen an Alan Rickman movie, you know the dramatic weight he brings to pretty much every gesture and utterance he delivers on screen. Now imagine that in aggressively slow motion. Or better yet, watch it.

Rickman (and Sigourney Weaver) are both marvelous in a little-seen recent independent film called "Snow Cake."
