Cinematography –

relationship between camera and the human eye;

adjusting to lights – more light; less depth of field; less light more depth creating wider field


Codecs are defined/organized

into 3 main categories,

  1. Acquisition – uncompressed/low compression – high quality/large file size
  2. Intermediate – dictated by system/ format of acquisition:  ‘proxy’ – lower resolution, lower bandwidth
  3. delivery –  where is it going; internet; lossy’ codec (compression delivery codec)= low bandwidth , e.g H.264 cinema – uncompressed; codecs e.g Jpeg 2000 Cinema DNG

Raw: over expose – more to work with

exposure; amount of light hitting the film/sensor

over exposure; washed out; what

can be stopped by diffusers;

Ansel Adams – landscape photographer

Zone system  – works in black to white; camera sees b&w;

Skin tones.

dynamic range

measured in stops of light

F stops – stills

T stop – accurate – light passing through the lens

F1.4 – T stop. T1.5

dynamic range – more to shoot; play.

BMC 13 dynamic stops of range

waveform – 100 ire

highlights  black no lower than zero

In photography and optics, a neutral density filter orND filter is a filter that reduces or modifies the intensity of all wavelengths or colors of light equally, giving no changes in hue of color rendition. It can be a colorless (clear) or grey filter.

waveform is the shape and form of a signal such as a wave moving in a physical medium or an abstract representation. In many cases the medium in which the wave is being propagated does not permit a direct visual image of the form.

Including animals to increase the difficulty involved in movement and colour correction,


Story 2:
a women/girl sleeps; dreams of running screaming away from danger;

every night.

cut to one day, shes in the same place the dream happens, runs like SHITTTTTTT

movement included with animals;
