Prompt #5: Framing

| No Comments

#5: Framing. Post by 8 pm Feb. 17.

Find a still image or clip from a television show, film or video game that you feel exemplifies a compelling choice in regards to framing and shot composition.

Post the link to your image or clip and briefly introduce it (tell us what movie or show it's from, provide a little context). Then explain the concept(s) or technique(s) it exemplifies. What framing and compositional choices were made? What kind of an impact do those choices have?

Be sure to reference specific concepts covered in the Zettl reading in your response. You might, for example, consider screen area and energy; horizontal or vertical orienation; tilted horizon; psychological closure; pull of the frame; headroom, nose room and/or lead room; or continuing, converging and/or diverging index and/or motion vectors.

Please use the tag #framing for this post.
