Operating in 4:3
Posted 23 May 2009 - 03:15 PM
I just got a cam op position on a student 16 mm film. I'm really excited however there is one thing bothering me, the final format will be 4:3 aspect ratio.
I will be using the Arri SR2 and this will be my first time working with this camera for something other than tests.
I was just wondering if there are any tips for shooting with final output in the 4:3 other than the obvious rule of thirds etc. any tricks to give this dated aspect ratio a little more life?

Watch a lot of old 4:3 movies? Hitchcock, Ford, Welles, Eisenstein, Kurosawa, Ozu, etc.
any tricks to give this dated aspect ratio a little more life?

Lucky man, worship the standard image aspect ratio of three to four, cognize its dymanics, the waltz rhythm, how you can slip into diagonals. Here is one who praises 3:4 and tells you. Full stop.
