Caught "Tremors" on TV the other night. There is a visual effect??? that I am curious about and will try to explain in words here. In most all shots of landscape and even a few MS with rocks, the highlights seem to flicker, or strobe. It's as if all the little shards of bright rock in the landscape are strobing on and off and it's undeniable when watching. My mom even commented, which led me to you guys. I vaguely remember seeing this years ago on a typical TV monitor before LCD and HD. Looking at the attached pic, if you can imagine a blanket of strobing/flickering lights in the background. This is a tough one to explain.
I don't know if you all are caught up on your Christmas "Tremors" viewing, but can anybody explain this? Is it intentional, or a by-product of film emulsion and landscape, something chemical?
Thanks to anyone who takes a stab at this one.
