Visual Drive is the cinematic equivalent of a protagonist driving a movie forward. Just like we talk about a protagonist (lead actor) whose actions drive the story forward I’d like to introduce this as a alternative term. I see visual drive as a directors cinematic meaning production that drives the movie. It is through this process that the movies meaning is produced. This term will will be showing up in my blog updates in the future, and I will elaborate on the concept later. I’m sure there are others who have coined similar terms, but I kind of like Visual drive. It is, as I see it, the essence of cinema.
