It's already 2013, but that doesn't mean we can't still look back at the great year of films 2012 brought us. We've already featured Nick Bosworth's Final Cut 2012, Kees van Dijkhuize's Cinema 2012, Genrocks Filmography 2012, Christopher Sherwood's Cinemageddon 2012, Nick Kinder's The Movies of 2012 and The 2012 Movie Trailer Mash-Up. Now one of our longtime favorites, Matthew Shapiro (check out his videos for 2011, 2010, 2009 and 2008), returns with 2012: The Cinescape. It's gorgeous, powerful, features some great music and films ranging from Beasts of the Southern Wild to Men in Black 3. Watch now!
Here's Matthew Shapiro's 2012: The Cinescape, originally found via SlashFilm:
Matthew Shapiro, as always, put in a lot of work for this video, right down to the comprehensive film list that also includes which lines of dialogue are featured as voiceover. Shapiro says, "Maybe it's weird to think of movie trailers as a source of material for storytelling, but until Spielberg hits me up, this is a pretty fun way to interact with the film world." Personally, I love his use of a track by M83 (check out the full music list on the YouTube page), but I'm truly blown away how he puts the dialogue from each of these films together.
