L'avventura shot design (1 reply)
Master roger i saw L'avventura after a long time. I need some guidance to understand this scene. After anna missing her lover and Claudia attracted each other. They are coming a place called Noto. They did stay couple of minutes at that place then they go to car and going another place. There is a empty landscape and building only after they are gone. But there is a slow dolly push when they start the car after car gone still camera moving towards building. Really i can't understand what kind of unease Antonioni tried to create in that particular shots. But it's very slow movie.
You noticed the feeling of unease so maybe that’s what the camera move is doing. Sometimes a very slow move on a static empty space can oddly enough make it feel more still, like only a ghost is moving through it (maybe). A small slow move can also make a space more three-dimensional, giving it more presence.
