Hey, writers, filmmakers, and human beings: You want to understand drama, story, action, emotion, and tension/release without using any dialogue and from the POV of a single protagonist? This is an AWESOME example:


I've watched it a few times now and get teary-eyed every time. This man's level of competence, his physical artistry, the *gasp* - WOW! of each stunt so smoothly executed, the superb filming, the lovely music, the gorgous setting... this is a great piece of work to study and understand in order to write better scenes, make better films, create better art of any form. Plus it's some fantastic stunt-trials riding.

Filmed on location in an abandoned train yard in the Scottish countryside, this music-video/filmof Danny Macaskill doing what he does best was directed by Stu Thomson for Channel 4's documentary, Concrete Circus.
