I was flipping through the channels tonight and came across the womens baseball flick A League of Their Own.
The film has in incredible amount of image flicker in the movement. I also noticed a huge amount of pans which had no subject... causing more flicker.

Has anyone noticed this before?

What do you think they were shooting on that would make it so distracting?

Since the movie was shot in 35mm anamorphic, were you seeing the letterboxed version? If not, half those pans may be electronic ones from panning & scanning, not in the original. I don't recall flickering when I saw the movie in the theater.

You need to change your User Name to your real first and last name. Thanks.

That makes sense.. It is the Television 4:3.

Will do on the whole name thing. I joined last night so I wasnt sure how things run around these parts.
