"Based on a True Story"
by Zackery Ramos-Taylor
Truly magnificent supercut that speaks volumes about the attention to detail of filmmaking craft, often seen in biopics or other films that pull from true events with documentation. This is one of my “North Star” favorite videos: something deceptively simple that shows us so much about filmmaking, and is beautifully edited.
