Monday, 17 May, 2021

When movies bring together engaging stories and powerful acting — dressed up with eye-catching costumes and geometrically-precise camera work — it’s dazzling.

These Instagram accounts let us peek behind the screen to see the real work that goes into creating unforgettable movie magic.


Film Tourism US - @filmtourismus

Andrea David is a travel blogger whose trips are inspired by films and television series. Her frame-matching photos are delightful and super-handy for planning your own pilgrimages to favorite shooting sights.

This account chooses representative frames from visually engaging movies to explore how the color palettes affect our emotions and help tell the story.


Best Movie Lines - @best.movie.lines

This account does a bang-up job of showing how movies combine memorable words with stunning visuals for lasting impact.


You Must Remember This - @youmustrememberthis

You Must Remember This is a must-listen podcast that tells the secret and/or forgotten histories of Hollywood’s first century. It’s no surprise that the related Insta is packed with fantastic pics of Tinseltown’s golden age.

This Was Hollywood - @thiswashollywood

Carla Valderrama loves movies — so much she wrote a book about it: This Was Hollywood: Forgotten Stars and Stories. Her Insta is a treasure trove of still photos and video clips that celebrate the magic of old Hollywood, and her captions are super informative.

In this ep, we take a trip to the Golden Age of Hollywood, then jump to the present to try to understand just what's going on in modern Tinseltown. Let's get glamorous, darling, and go behind-the-scenes of the biz.
The smell of power and starlets' perfume wafted through the dining of The Brown Derby during the '30s and '40s. Everyone who was anyone ate there and brokered deals. And one night, they invented a timeless recipe.
We might sometimes get a bit belligerent and argue that 'the book is always better.' But if we're totally honest, we enjoy a bad adaptation as much as a good one. The coulda/shoulda/woulda talk is so much fun.
