Shapes / Lines Composition is one of those really powerful tools as animators/filmmakers. Status / Personal Space While status / personal space and composition in general are very vast areas to talk about, I wanted to pass my two cents as to main points I think about when it comes to these areas.

Welcome to The Computer Graphics Society Welcome to the official home of The Other Brothers! Curso de dibujo y pintura. Manual de dibujo Art of Jung Park Hitchcock’s "Rear Window," Recut Into An Amazing Panoramic View Rear Window is, in my book, Hitchcock’s best film. It hooks you in immediately, trapped in the same sense of voyeuristic helplessness as Jimmy Stewart’s wheelchair-bound character who finds himself the witness to a murder in his own backyard. It’s also a film that draws much of its suspense from limited perspective--shots cropped by a telephoto lens, tiny snippets of isolated characters going about their days. Powered by After Effects and the patience of Job, Jeff Desom recut (and reshaped) Rear Window into one giant panorama. “I was asked by a local (Luxembourg) venue to create a projection that could be looped on a very wide screen,” Desom tells Co.Design. It was a moment of inspiration that would prove punishing to actualize. Once his proof-of-concept was complete, Desom had to map an intersecting storyline for each of Rear Window ’s characters that appeared in the POV clips. It’s an idea that could drive Hitchcock mad with paradox.
