A HISTORY OF MOVIE TRAILERS Movie trailers are everything. They're our first real impression of a film, not just in terms of the story or the actors, but also in terms of how a film will feel. We've all ended up seeing something we never thought we would, or have skipped something we thought we'd love simply based on the trailer. It's the movie equivalent of judging a book by its cover, only more thorough and at least comprised of the works' best bits. Heck, for a lot of folks, it's their favorite part about the theater-going experience.

There are lots of little subtle tricks going on under the main action and dialogue designed to make us feel certain ways, frame our minds in certain ways, and even expect certain things. Already this week we introduced you to a video essay on Scorsese's use of color, specifically red, to effect the emotional ambiance of a scene, but if you thought that was sneaky hold onto your hats because today we're talking about aspect ratio as a thematic device.

50 Inspiring Vintage Advertisements Like many others I find myself captivated with vintage advertising. There have been numerous articles, blog posts and websites dedicated to the subject and I just can’t seem to get enough. Specifically, it is the advertising of the 50′s and 60′s that is most aesthetically pleasing to me. It seems every ad in that era was either a beautifully shot photograph or a stunning Rockwellian painting. VISUAL NARRATIVES: COMPOSITION IN STORYTELLING The basic building block of cinema is the image. We here at One Perfect Shot understand this very well, as it’s pretty much what we’re built on, too: the idea that single frame of cinema, a single image, can carry with it resonant emotional power that tells more than just a story but delivers the feeling of the narrative directly to our senses without the need for verbal interpretation. Through staging, framing, depth, and balance, filmmakers craft these images one frame at a time, much like an artist painting his masterpiece one stroke at a time. If, then, the screen is the canvas, composition – or how the above-mentioned elements contribute to the overall image – is the brush, the tool that is employed to convey emotional resonance into the physical form of the image. And like any tool, it use and efficacy changes each time it is picked up by someone new.
