Staging and Blocking in Raiders of the Lost Ark

Vashi Nedomansky has assembled a comprehensive collection of resources for the film Raiders of the Lost Ark:

Raiders of the Lost Ark is a glorious obsession of mine. I have watched it close to 100 times and always glean a new detail or filmmaking tidbit on each viewing. As a child I looked up to Indy, now as a filmmaker I look up to Spielberg. Raiders of the Lost Ark is a masterpiece that fires on all cylinders with equal parts: adventure, comedy, action, thriller, love story and the supernatural. I’ve scoured the internet for rare content and also created my own video essays in order to assemble this ‘1-Page Film School’. – See more at: [link]

Of special interest to my Cartooning & Animation students will be an examination of staging and blocking used in the film’s longer shots (see video above).
