Simple Lines Reveal Masterful Compositions in Iconic Film Scenes #ArtTuesday

Geometric shots Metropolis

Geometric Shots is a visually stimulating new project from Raymond Thi that explores the geometry behind some of the most famous film stills.

A collection of geometric shots from film and TV.

There are infinite ways to frame a shot. There are no rules you have to follow.
This site merely explores a certain type of composition.

  1. Like the frequent fitting of the “Fibonacci Spiral” on nature photos (ferns, shells, etc), most of these look ridiculously forced; the actual element, even in the exemplar here, do *not* match the overlays. In the above example, the cinematographer is being *far* more sophisticated than the elementary lines drawn – you can see the hands reaching (at the lower sides) *above* the slope used – the slope is plain and simply *wrong*

    If you follow the lines of the reaching hands, they lead not to the woman, but to the *creature* – then *accelerating* (with the high contrast) to the female figure.

    Almost every example beyond is similarly trivial, and mostly forced – most of the visual lines are plain-and-simple single-point perspective – and the examples shown don’t even bother to follow the actual lines in the images.

    Yes, the images are masterfully composed – but at least give credit for what the cinematographers actually *did*, rather than trying to make it look like they *missed* the composition.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
