Movies of all kinds are built around stitching together a unit of filmmaking called a scene. Every scene includes one or several images captured in a single location to give you an idea of what’s happening in a particular time and place. Those that are done right, will become a part of your memory about a film, an image that contains the whole idea within itself.
