"Unchained Camera Technique."

Well played, Tarantino. I no longer believe in coincidences.

After a quick search on Wikipedia I discovered that the very first film by German filmmaker F.W. Murnau (most well-know for Nosferatu) was inspired by The Blue Boy. It was called Der Knabe in Blau (The Boy in Blue). This film is now lost.

Doing some more research on Murnau, I discovered that in 1924, he invented a camera technique that allowed filmmakers to move the camera while they film. This made way for panning, tilting, and tracking. According to Wikipedia, this is "arguably the most important stylistic innovation of the 20th century, setting the stage for some of the most commonly used cinematic techniques of modern contemporary cinema." Do you know what this technique is referred to by the professional filmmaking community? Unchained Camera Technique. Read more.

Well played, Quentin.
