The innocents(1961) camera moves (4 replies and 5 comments)
Dear master roger as you suggest i have watched "The innocents"(1961). Yes there was lot's of camera moves. I need to ask lot questions about this particular movie. For instance there is a conversation going on Miles and miss gidden about school in bedroom. But the camera moves little faster. I mean the camera rhythm little bit faster than usual slow moves. Not only in this shot. And some other shots also little faster compare than any other slow moves.Is this fast camera moves also convey miss gidden anxiety level.
I need to ask about miss gidden and child's uncle conversation. There is a couple of low angle shots. I couldn't find any threading or high power related. Whats your assume?
Here by i have attached the low angle of michael and miss gidden beginning conversation. And i need to ask about deep focus tool. I think this picture deep focus. What is the reason for deep focus. Did jack Clayton want strongly presents the house for all the time. Because the house is the important element in this movie. What is thoughts about deep focus tool generally.
2. Low angle shot of miss gidden and michael
You might want to add this thread to the one on depth of field next door!
Yes there is a topic going on about depth of field. But suddenly innocents deep focus comes to my mind when I am asking you innocents camera movement!
Master roger I might add deep focus question on the next door. What do you think about "The innocents" camera moves and low angle!
If a person is sitting and the other person is standing, you often have to lower the camera to hold both heads in the shot especially in 2.35. In the old Academy ratio, you could have a lot of headroom so it was easier to frame people with very different heights.
Of course, the staging makes the man more powerful by standing and being shot from a lower angle.
The constant camera movement in 'The Innocents' was done to create tension and a sense of unease.
It's very rare the camera moves all the time here and there... I didn't watch much films like 'The innocent's movie.
