08/29/16 Film History Miseenscene Patton (clip 1) General in front of American flag. Iconic, large. Military scene (on stage); close up on costume (very intricate and unique), very little panning. Flag looks bigger with zoom; High key lighting – evenly lit, low key – soft light, hard shadows. THX1138 (clip 2) White everything, dehumanizing, sterile vibe. Jump cuts are used several times; blank, featureless characters with better contrast than humans in white. Wideangle shots for giving perspective. Some characters contrast deadlike ones with talkative ones. Lighting is difficult with all white background. Man from UNCLE (clip 3) Elaborate garage, iconography of the main character’s suit; setting described by costumes, historical reference. Low key lighting. Blocking: man in suit stands above woman under car, but then becomes eye to eye. Neutral color grading gives an old feel. Actors play as other nationalities. 08/31/16 Film History Cinematography – Audience POV – Everything inside the camera. The camera changes that world it records. The director of photography controls the viewpoint (3d to 2d, color, etc.) Color correction fixes camera color issues. Effects are done postproduction nowadays instead of on shooting days. Film Stock – Actual film or digital. 24fps standard speed. Color was expensive effect back in the day until the 60s. Black and white considered old today. Lenses – Focal length: short = wide angle (distance of focus is short), medium = normal human vision (maintains special references), long = narrow space for far away action, zoom lens is variable. Old cameras had three lens on a rotating wheel to switch perspectives. Focus (selective attention). Depth of (focal) field – how much of the composition is in focus. Racking/pulling: switching focus from foreground to background (and vice versa). Soft focus – slight out of focus for a dreamy, youthful effect. Deep focus – everything is in focus, but no selective view. Framing – long, medium, and closeup (with extremes). Establishing shots are extreme long shots and provide location/character information. High angle shots show power; Low angle is lack of power. Canted/Dutch angle = world is somehow not right. Aspect ratio – it’s change a lot over the years; fitting to screen can cut off important things. Camera movement – pan (left, right), tilt (up, down), dolly (rolling platform), tracking (on tracks, is used for repeat shots), Steadicam (camera harness for operator to wear, gyro platform for stabilization).
