View from the people wall (1965)

I really enjoyed watching this film by Ray and Charles Eames. Did make me think about my own decision making but there is a framework that underlies how the film is told which is similar to the way the powers of ten is told.
The films both work because of this simple framework or diagram which is quite effective. As information films I love them, the cinematic footage and arrangement of stills with film makes it very fluid to watch and to re watch as the eye can not focus in the same amount of detail on all the squares.
It’s a great piece of work that must have taken quite some planning in getting the sequences done. I would like to reuse some of techniques found in these films upon revisiting my unfinished short.
