Chapter 5: The shot- Cinematography Cinematography - writing in movement depends on photography. Variables: range of tonalities, manipulate the speed of motion, and transform perspective. The range of tonalities: Film stocks - dif chemical qualities of the emulsion. Fast film stock - sensitive to reflective light produces contrast. Manipulative film stock—lighting, and development varies. Technicolor- high saturation Before color stock was available filmmakers used tinting. Hand coloring- portions of black and white images painted in colors. Range of tonalities is mostly affected by exposure. – how much light passes thru the camera lens. Film noir - uses underexposed shadowy regions. - Filters- slices of glass or gelatin put in lens - day for a night- using blue filters in daylight to make it night time, b4 modern tech. Speed of Motion - depends on rate film was shot and rate of projection. Frames per second. 24 frames per second, now in 35 mm camera (8-64 frames). - Fast motion effect- film is exposed at fewer frames per second than projection. - slow motion effect- more frames per second shot. - Ramping- digital shifting speed of movement very smoothly and rapidly. - Optical printing- to skip frames (accelerating the action) or repeat frames ( stretch printing) Perspective Lens- is the eye, takes in light. Wide-angle lens increases depth, and telephoto reduces. The lens: Focal length- the distance from the center of the lens to the point where llight rays converge to a point of focus on the film. 1. short focal length lens (wide angle) - bulge, and exxagerate depth. 2. Middle focal length ( normal lens) 35- 50 mm – straight perpindicular, less distortion. 3.
