VOTD: "What Is Bayhem"

Say what you want about Michael Bay's filmmaking style, it's one that's not only popular with audiences but one many action filmmakers have tried to ape over the years.

Now, Tony Zhou has done a ten-minute analysis of Bay's filmmaking style in the new video essay "What is Bayhem?" which explores his camera techniques, shot compositions, and editing style which is all about going "big" with every shot.

It's a balanced look at his style from someone who admits he's not a fan, but tries to properly analyse it as opposed to falling back on all too easy snark.
