You definitely know the Academy and their annual Oscars celebration, but do you know their YouTube channel, Academy Originals?
Academy Originals is a treasure trove of film knowledge presented documentary-style through interviews with directors, cinematographers, producers, master craftsmen, set designers, consultants, actors – anyone playing a part in creating movie magic.
