5 Instagram Handles Every Movie Lover Should Follow, Film Companion

For most cinephiles, the interest in a film doesn’t just stop when the end credits roll. The obsession for everything cinema-related drives us to delve deeper into the peripherals of movie-making. From behind the scenes footage to interviews about the filmmaking process, we actively search the interwebs and beyond hoping for things through which we can enrich our understanding of film. For those of you, who like us, have been bit by the cinema bug, here’s five Instagram handles to follow.

Color Palette Cinema

This handle picks out aesthetic frames from some of the most visually stunning movies and demonstrates the range of different colors that make them. It’s easy to miss the incredible amount of detail and work that goes into making these shots, and this handle draws our attention to exactly that. It can act as a lovely reference point for budding filmmakers looking to beautify their films. And for everyone else, just something to admire.

Script to Screen

Their bio quotes the famous Hitchcock line – “To make a great film you need three things – the script, the script & the script.” By juxtaposing footage from memorable films with the corresponding text from their scripts, this handle can provide crucial insights into the filmmaking process – how ideas are translated from text to screen and how actors improvise dialogue while maintaining the essence of the text.

This current light was in use until 1974 before being decommissioned by the United States Coast Guard • • Shortly after it was decommissioned, in 1982 the Fire Island Lighthouse Preservation Society (FILPS) was formed to preserve the light. FILPS raised over $1.2 million to restore the tower and light and on May 25, 1986 the Coast Guard returned the Fire Island Lighthouse to an active aid to navigation • • When the lighthouse was built it was on the edge of Fire Island Inlet and marked the western end of the island. However through accumulation of sand, Fire Island has extended itself so that the lighthouse is now nearly five miles (8.0 km) from the western end of the island at Democrat Point • • In 1981, the light was added to the National Register of Historic Places. Today, the it can be accessed by a short walk from Robert Moses State Park and is open daily to the public. Tower tours are available for a small fee • • Know more?
