Leonardo DiCaprio Acting His Heart Out

For the Favorite Actor/Actress Highlight Reel assignment I put together the video above. I am a big fan of DiCaprio movies so I enjoyed going back and looking at some of these crazy scenes he made.

Behind the Creation

I knew immediately when I saw this assignment that I was going to make this compilation for Leonardo DiCaprio. I think  he is such a great actor and just embodies any character he plays so well. I hope that this compilation sheds some light on DiCaprio’s acting ability, if it is not evident already. There are many other movie clips I could of selected but I had to try my best to keep this within a minute. Despite the fact that he has only won one oscar in his career (which is a load of BS), he is one of the best actors in Hollywood today. I hope you all will enjoy watching these as much as I did. Also fun fact in the first scene from Django Unchained, when DiCaprio slammed his hand on the table he accidentally hit a glass that smashed and cut his hand badly. He continued with the scene despite his hand bleeding badly, just goes to show how much he gives for his roles.

The Process

I used iMovie to put this video together. The process of importing and cutting the clips to create the movie was the same as in my All Hail King Leo assignment. Refer to the tutorial I made in there to get a more detailed explanation of how I put the video together.

  1. You did a great job on this video! I was expecting for it to just be made up of clips following one another, but I really like how you introduced each clip by providing the movie title and year. The video seems very well composed and the quality is consistent among the clips (something I struggled with). Great Job!

    I did the same assignment. I can’t believe I did not think of The Wolf of Wall Street. It’s such an entertaining movie.

  3. LOVE this! I was worried that you weren’t going to say what each movie the clip was from, but you did, and I think that made it even better. You picked such a good actor for this, too, considering he has so many movies out there.
