Within the Frame

This week we focused on the creative and practical tools used to create a films cinematography. As I haven’t given much thought to this in regards to our own film, I thought I would brainstorm and seek inspiration from other films I have seen. The first director that came to my mind was Wes Anderson, who directed The Darjeeling Limited, The Royal Tenenbaums and most recently Moonrise Kingdom:Screen shot 2013-04-15 at 12.38.37 PMmoonrisemoonriseUsing a Long depth of field, Anderson utilizes the wide angle frame.Throughout his films, he also seems to create highly intricate mi-en-scenes. Relying heavily on visuals, the frames often suggest more about the characters than the actual script does. Although this style doesn’t seem to work very well with our genre, it does emphasize the importance and thought that needs to be considered when designing a films cinematography.
