Design Being Used in Cinema
I’ve always been inspired by movies! Stanley Kubrick was a huge inspiration for me when I got my first Hi8mm camera in 98 (Thanks Justi!). My friend Eric and I would go out and take what we called “Artistic Kubrick shots” of random locations. I think movies have helped develop my photography eye, but you have to be sensitive to what is being displayed on the screen. As of late, I’ve found inspiration in the series Game of Thrones. Their cinematographer, Alik Sakharov, is one of the best at composition I’ve seen…and I’m sure the rule of thirds never entered his mind. Almost every seen in Game of Thrones is composed to perfection! Below I’ve displayed quite a few shots from that series, and other films just to give you an idea of how they use design.
