    Five-minute video clip explaining why diacope is what makes so many movie lines memorable.



    There's a nice use of classic film clips illustrating examples of diacope. I'll even throw in an example from Moby Dick TWoK, that everybody should be familiar with

    Very cool.

    Dude needs to get himself a ring light, though. They’re ridiculously inexpensive these days.

    Or just shift his position in relation to that overhead light.

    The ceiling fixture provides a natural hair light for separation from the background. Adding an inexpensive ring light would fill in his face, making for a really good setup.
