I read Rodger Ebert’s “How to read a Movie” and it was interesting how he would stop the scene and look at where the characters were as far as their possession relative to where another person was in that scene. The way that a film critic looks at a movie is much different than I thought they would. He would spend hours with college students and ask questions about if a scene was using french, he would ask the french major to translate.
Kubrick’s One point perspective was profound because every scene had some element of cemetery involved it it, which its visually appealing to the audience. There were a lot of colors, there were a lot of unique visuals in the background. The whole thing from different movies had some similarity to them.
I watched Examples of editing techniques which showed different ways to use the camera. That was useful for our latest project because you don’t want to keep using the same techniques over and over again. I would think that you could lose your audience that way.
I watched the Top 20 cinematic techniques which I did not realize that a lot of great movies came up with their own unique camera technique. Now I hope we can imitate their techniques so that our show is not boring for the audience.
All of these show what to do with a camera and how to use it effectively. I feel like until I do it I wont know what to expect. I just hope the audience does not fall asleep while my show is going on.
