MUST WATCH The Changing Shape of Cinema: The History of Aspect Ratio, by John P. Hess (18:15)

Posted by Robert Hardy on June 28, 2013 • 

 

"How often do we think about aspect ratios? Better yet, how often do we think about where all of our aspect ratios came from and the storied cinematic histories from which they were born? It’s an interesting question, not only for the sake of being more informed about the technical history of cinema, but also for having a better understanding of the implications of various aspect ratios on your film’s aesthetic and story. Hit the jump for an extensive video lesson on the history of the aspect ratio.

 

Filmmaker IQ has produced an awesome and in-depth course called “Everything You Need to Know About Aspect Ratio“. The first lesson from their course is a sprawling 18 minute exposé with all of the aspect ratio history you could ever want."

Fred Harden's insight:

Yeah size matters but I'm reminded of Jean Cocteau who said "The next time I write a poem, I shall use a larger sheet of paper. The problem is in using archival images (all that 16mm, 8mm, VHS diary footage)  and destroying the composition when cropping it to 16x9. It looks old. It is.

What Does Branded Content Even Mean Anymore?!

What Does Branded Content Even Mean Anymore?! | DigitalNewMedia | Scoop.it
I think I speak for a lot of people when I say if I have to hear that “insert content type here” is king just one more time, I might just have to get all Game of Thrones on the industry. We get it! Content is powerful.
Fred Harden's insight:

As Doherty says "let’s define what it’s not. It’s not a paid ad, a sponsorship or product placement...Think deep content experiences when you hear branded content....Deep content experiences. Deep content experiences. Deep content experiences."

Some background to the DuPont Horizons Project videos which certainly softened my impression of DuPont as a multi-national mega heavy.

Superb campaign uses augmented reality to bring books to life

Superb campaign uses augmented reality to bring books to life | DigitalNewMedia | Scoop.it

A Canadian publisher has launched a campaign targeting 12-17 year old girls using an augmented reality app to enhance the traditional experience of reading books. The campaign was launched with an in store promotion that allowed users to scan a bookcase to find hidden treasure (follows the book’s story line as well) and if they didn’t have a smart phone with them there was one there in the store to use. We are seeing lots of these sorts of interactive campaigns pop up from both book publishers and traditional print media as they aim to bridge the gap between traditional media and the new wave of technology coming along. Ultimately people are going to end up reading the books on their phones and tablets but it’s refreshing to see companies trying to come up with an innovative alternative that appeals to a whole new audience.

Privacy & The Internet of Things - this is where we’re going | Australian Policy Online | DigitalNewMedia | Scoop.it

We are rapidly proceeding to a point where the range of data being collected can literally be used to reconstruct a person’s life. The privacy issues brought about by the Internet of Things will make concerns about our interactions on social media giants such as Facebook seem trivial by comparison.

The recent furore over the German Government’s use of spyware to watch its citizens is also a harbinger of the amount of information that can be obtained by controlling connectedness to the internet.
