Cinematography Notes

Here are a few notes I dug up from an early cinematography class. They’re short and good to keep in mind.

  • Eye first looks at what is moving, then what’s brightest.
  • Film is a 2-Dimensional medium. The idea is to create the appearance of 3 dimensions through composition, lighting, and camera movies. Tilt, Pan, and Zoom are 2-D moves. Dolly, Crane, and Jib are 3-D.

I also have some foot-candle notes, but I think that’s a discussion for another day.
