Week 5 – pg. Composition 1. Composition a. Framing – the physical boundaries of the picture. i. Aspect Ratios 1. Classic = 4 units wide / 3 units tall = 1.33 : 1 2. Widescreen (1950s) = 5.5 units wide / 3 units tall = 1.85 : 1 3. Panavision = 7.05 units wide / 3 units tall = 2.35 : 1 ii. Aesthetic Considerations 1. Border gives contrast which accentuates the picture. 2. Un-centered frame (oblique) makes picture seem chaotic. 3. Coloring will fragment frame. 4. Foreground vs. background will fragment (splinter) frame. 5. Form is mask/matte when there’s cover over lens so frame appears circular (or some other shape). iii. On-screen vs. Off-screen Space 1. Off-screen space is unlimited. It spills over. There are 6 more directions than what’s visible in shot (6 sides of cube). 2. Off-screen made sounds energize the screen’s space. b. Staging – relationship of players to each other, light, props… i. Proxemic Patterns WITHIN the Frame – spatial relationships between organisms in a space that create meaning
