Aspect Ratio and Framing

Ran across a new blog to me: david Bordwell's website on cinema which looks to be basically a film arts class in blog form.

Anyway was reading this interesting post about how having a wide aspect ratio allows you to include minorly important details without having to be heavy handed and doing a cut shot to show them, or being able to have people in the background listening without it feeling totally staged. Intersting read, though a bit abstract.

*probably gonna be mining there all day
