Xavier Dolan’s Composition Style

Xavier Dolan’s Composition Style

This video by sharonlopezt goes through the filmography of Canadian filmmaker Xavier Dolan who, at age 28, has already directed 7 films and received some of the most prestigious accolades in the world, including the Grand Prize at Cannes in 2016.

Dolan got noticed with this very first film ‘J’ai Tué Ma Mère‘ for his asserted aesthetic that has developed throughout the years but usually mixes frontal composition, slow motion, and pop-music.

See the selected frames below, along with the full video. It serves as great visual support to Dolan’s universe, and if you’d like to know more about the filmmaker’s working techniques and journey as a filmmaker, see why Xavier Dolan doesn’t stop rolling when he gives notes to actors, and the three questions he learned to ask himself while filming.
