Film's a visual medium:
6. Don’t say it, show it
This is fundamental to animation and should most definitely be applied to film. Visual communication is a universal language, one that anyone can understand no matter where they are from. This makes it incredibly powerful, not to mention simple. Something as subtle as a shift in a character’s stance or the way they walk can say more than any amount of dialogue.
