A beautiful video essay by Tony Zhou, on the editing techniques of master animator Satoshi Kon. Kon created, in just about 20 years, a damn-near-perfect quartet of feature cartoons–Perfect Blue, Millennium Actress, Tokyo Godfathers, and Paprika–along with one of the best anime series (Paranoia Agent) of all time. Zhou reveals one of Kon’s methods.
Man, I miss Kon.
