I don’t know why I’m joking; actually, I feel miserable.

I think an interesting film is something that you can have an aftertaste.

The Psychology of Cinematography: 

Wes Anderson, David Fincher, Darren Aronofsky, Quentin Tarantino & Stanley Kubrick

These are all shots where the emphasis is on the entirety of the shot as a whole and provides a much more distant kind of view, allowing the goings on to register as it is instead of having a specific cinematic mood attached. 

I’ve never heard anyone say not to try for symmetry in your shots, but I was told to be aware of the psychological effect it has on audiences. This little reel is a prime example of how off-putting symmetry can be in motion picture photography. Even in the ones in which there is no immediate danger or horror present. You feel like there’s something wrong in every one of these shots. You can’t put your finger on it, but you know things aren’t quite right. The psychology of symmetry is used whenever a filmmaker wants to put an audience at unease. Which, as you can see, was often.

This concept can be applied to many other concepts and styles of cinematography such as  Look down, look up, Hiphop cuts, mood lighting etc. 

These are some of my favorite examples cinematography put in a gif set.

Alright, so I had hoped to have a FEW prints lined up for SDCC, and that quickly turned into many. I’m really excited about these prints and I hope you guys are too! 

Each print will be available at the start of each day in limited quantities (so those who can only make it on certain days will still have a shot). I’ll also have a SDCC exclusive t-shirt which will be available in limited quantities. Nucleus will be releasing an exclusive print, Mondo will also have a new (yet to be announced) Just Like Us, as well as the Joker record. 

You can find me at the Gallery Nucleus booth (#2743) where I’ll be with the huggable Scott C. and the fabulous Frank and Becky (also huggable). Please stop by and say hello, pick up a free postcard and see the Lil Mikey figure in person!

High-intensity noise that exceeds 95 decibels disrupts performance on complex tasks but improves it on simple, boring tasks — noise tends to raise arousal level, which can be useful when trying to stay alert during mindless and monotonous work, but can agitate you out of creative flow when immersed in the kind of work that requires deliberate, reflective thought… These effects, of course, are relative to one’s psychological constitution… Writers more afflicted with anxiety tend to be more disconcerted by noisy environments. Proust and Carlyle appear to have been among those writers — the former wrote in a cork-lined room to eliminate obtrusive sounds and the latter in a noiseproof chamber to ensure absolute silence — whereas Allen Ginsberg was known for being able to write anywhere, from trains to planes to parks.
