Shape constancy – change of shape depending on perspective In a static frame eye goes to brightest object Darkest part of the frame Entire frame The movement In motion frame Longitudinal surfaces – the strongest depth clue (not part of the 10, sub- category of convergence). invites you into frame. Flat space – depthless. Only use frontal space. Flat space – picture frame parallel to surface. Emphasizes flatness of world. Restricted, makes audience observer. 1. Frontal surfaces only, no longitudinal surfaces 2. Keep everyone the same size 3. Stage everything in same horizontal plane 4. Movement only parallel to picture plane and only on a single plane 5. Limit color palette or reverse it (pull warm colors back farther, push cool colors forward) 6. Limit the greyscale 7. Reduce aerial diffusion contrast 8. Reduce texture palette 9. A long lens can remove all depth clues 10. Avoid diagonals 11. No camera movement except dolly parallel to picture plane Deep space – sense of freedom, positive environment that draws you in

Unformatted text preview: ● Limited space – creates sense of separation. Between 3 and 6 stacked frontal planes. Actor must stay in one plane. Gives impression of actor being stuck. Feels more limited if actor is against one of columns. ● Ambiguous space – can be any combination of deep or flat space. Any depth clues present must be unreliable. Have no idea what is being looked at. Brain tries hard to figure out what it is, and shot sticks with people. Use when want audience to be disoriented. Anxiety provoking. ● Closed space - When lines within the frameline further support the framelines helping to keep audience attention in the frame ● Open space – NOT the opposite of closed space. When images within frameline are so intense that they overpower the framelines. Movement MUST be present. Makes audience forget they’re watching a movie (for a few seconds). Open space stills – turn down exposure....

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
