Lecture: Cinema and Fashion/Art Video

A photograph is a still image therefor only seen from one viewpoint, whereas multiple frames are seen in a video.

A vast range of cinematic techniques manages to allow small details to be visible even in a moving video.

  • Close-up
  • Tracking – a following of a subject, allows chaotic scenes to remain a level of detail
  • Slow motion – makes the ordinary seem extra extraordinary
  • Timelapse
  • Stillness
  • Framing – frame within frames, to focus attention but also a barrier, to connect yet separate
  • Multiple screens – provides larger amount of information as well as suggesting links
  • Loops – repetition of imagery
  • Composition and a constant visual style
  • Lighting
  • Colour – sense of structure and character
  • Continuity – flow or film/image
  • Continuity editing – flow of editing, smooth
  • Transitions – sense of meaning, bringing scenes together
  • Audio – sense of meaning, bringing scenes together
  • Planning – mood board
  • Bring it all together!
