Advanced Cinematography Compositions

Welcome to my media section, where I share insights and inspiration from our projects. Here, you’ll find a selection of composition guides and ideas that I referenced from a cinematography course in college. I used to be protective about concepts like these, but I’ve come to believe they will be great for both of us to consider throughout our pre-production planning.

Composition Guides

  • Creating Depth: Use overlap, foreground elements, and scale to add dimension to your shots.
  • Rule of Thirds: Divide the frame into nine equal parts to enhance visual interest.
  • Leading Lines: Guide the viewer’s eye to the main subject using lines within the scene.
  • Golden Spiral and Golden Section: Utilize these classical techniques for aesthetically pleasing compositions.
  • Abstract Shapes: Incorporate fun, abstract shapes to add a unique touch to your visuals.
  • S-Curve and L-Shape: Implement these shapes to create dynamic and engaging frames.

Looking Ahead

As we move forward, I am excited to explore opportunities to incorporate these advanced compositions into our work. I invite you to discuss these ideas with me during the storyboarding and location-scouting phases. Let’s collaborate to create visually compelling shots that stand out.

Let’s keep our concepts brief, engaging, and intriguing by pushing for innovative and visually stunning elements at the right parts of the story!
