Artistic Choices in Filmmaking

When watching this new short from RocketJump I was reminded of what Yuan was telling us about making artistic choices when planning for your film. Yuan showed us an example of how Kung Fu Panda was influenced by the look of Chinese ink wash paintings. In the RocketJump short they purposefully went through the process of making every element of their footage being reminiscent of the 90’s e.g by educating the actors to capture a very specific tone, abusing and overusing the dutch angle tilts and using an 8mm fish eye lens. They then ran the high resolution footage through a vcr to get the 90’s low tech look. Dez Dolly “Sometimes the best way to do something is to do it for real” (as opposed to After Effects etc.)
