Lensing for Character Perspective

From Travis Lee Ratcliff

In this video essay I explore specific examples of how lensing can be used to create subjective perspective. Using lenses strategically is one of the most powerful tools at a filmmaker’s disposal for crafting psychology, imbuing images with richer visual meaning, and creating character perspective. Many new filmmakers struggle with the terminology and differences between various lenses, but overcoming that initial confusion can result in one of the biggest distinctions between the novice filmmaker and the experienced storyteller.

This video follows up on the concept of subjective and objective perspective, which I explain more completely here:vimeo.com/219223876
