Images to represent cinematography is like books to represent Shakespeare's plays.
At least link a youtube video or something, like so:
Neither does cinematography. It's a series of still images, which are what make up films and/or animation. As such, pictures are an effective way of showing some degree of cinematography. Are you retarded?
This is an IMAGE board, not a VIDEO board, so cinematography threads here have always been compilations of still images.
>Neither does cinematography
No anon, it is. CINEMA is a word that comes from the roots of movement. And a series of still images when placed together creates the illusion of movement, just like a photograph creates the illusion of whatever it is a photograph of.
Also, you seem to have forgotten about webms. But that seems to be the case for you imbeciles.
Photography teaches many of the same principles as cinematography. Camera shots, whether in film or photography, operate off of the same shit a lot of the time. Wide shots, full shots, close ups, and how that synergizes with the scene. The camera is not always constantly in motion.
And the reason nobody would use webms all the time is because you can only express a single scene of cinematography in one webm, not to mention the pain in the ass it is to encode one. Simple collages express a bunch of the techniques used in an anime, and there are loads of them that have been made. Why don't you go bitch to the people who made them considering that they're constantly posted in "cinematography" threads on /a/.
Why must we sperg over semantics when it's obvious what the thread is supposed to be about?
Who the fuck cares? Everyone knows what OP meant.
>because you can only express a single scene of cinematography in one webm
And you can't even do that in an image.
>The camera is not always constantly in motion.
But the SUBJECTS of the camera, ARE in motion. And that changes everything. And then when the camera itself is in motion, when it weaves around the subjects, moving here to there, moving around to focus on the important parts without the need for cuts, it creates an effect that photography can't even compare to.
Basically faggot, you are a fuckwit who doesn't even appreciate cinematography.
>sperg over semantics
Even more an example of shit taste. You're probably one of the fuckwits who uses the term "animes" too, no doubt.
What the fuck did you just say about me? I have a Master's Degree in Filmmaking from Yale, you fucking piece of shit. I know more about cinematography than you will in your entire lifetime, shitstain.
Of course, but you can examine the shot composition of a film by using still images, just like you can examine the writing of a play using the script.
There's no need to be so petty.
Maybe you should go back and re-do it then.
>But the SUBJECTS of the camera, ARE in motion.
Not him but
that isn't cinematography, it's animation. At least in the case of anime.
>And then when the camera itself is in motion, when it weaves around the subjects, moving here to there, moving around to focus on the important parts without the need for cuts, it creates an effect that photography can't even compare to.
And this doesn't always happen. Some shots are camera angles, not moving shots, in anime. Key word being some, meaning the OP's term cinematography wasn't all-encompassing for all elements of cinematography. Pictures are enough to capture SOME cinematography, just look at the images posted in this thread. You can't argue the images in those collages aren't examples of cinematography.
In short, cinematography is just the film equivalent of photography, or maybe better defined as photography in motion. It extends to simply "shots" in a film or animation, and also the camera work. Obviously the images posted in this thread were of the former.
Thank you, that's the term I was looking for. Shot composition, which is an element of cinematography, is probably what the thread is supposed to be about.
That said, it'd be better to drop the debate and just post examples.
>You can't argue the images in those collages aren't examples of cinematography
That is exactly what I am arguing.
>cinematography is just the film equivalent of photography
The film equivalent of photography must have motion anon, otherwise it's still photography. You need to pay attention.
If you want an example of what I am talking about here >>118686027 when I talk about the movement of the camera look at this video from between 0:25 to 0:34.
It's not anime, but it's a good example of my point that motion is completely important when talking about cinematography. If the camera was still and doing still shots the entire time, it wouldn't have anywhere near the same effect.
Composition AND motion are elements of cinematography. Remove motion, and all you have is a photo.
Anyway I'll leave you guys in peace in your thread about composition. I've said my bit, anything else would just be me having to repeat myself to those who can't read.
This is exactly the kinda shit I am talking about.
Fucking awesome example.
Most of that isn't a good example of good cinematography.
Anno a genius
Cinematography is just visual. Direction can encompass anything.
I don't know a ton about anime production though, so I may be wrong. This is just what I'd assume.
I'm sure they have much to do with each other though.
I just love the touches that Sugita and the other seiyuu add to each loop. It's amazing how good a job they did recording the same lines eight times. All had perfect changes to make the loops feel simultaneously more tedious and more interesting.
Anyone have a Mine Fujiko to iu Onna collage?
That one had godly cinematography.
Ghost in the Shell Arise Border 1: Ghost Pain
I have many, but I will just post like 10 of them.
Ghost in the Shell Arise Border 2: Ghost Whisper
Ghost in the Shell Arise Border 3: Ghost Tears
Ghost in the Shell Arise Border 4: Ghost Stands Alone
The visual may or may not looks appealing to you, but trust, this movie is amazing.
Just tell me if I should post more...
I just go to a site... I don't have an editing program like Photoshop...
But I essentially screencap, then crop to the perfect picture size and then use the collage maker. I do it that way. I don't care if there's a faster way to do it.
I only have two HxH collages.
This one with the Hunter exam arc, Zoldyck Family arc and Heaven's Arena arc mixed together.
And this one.
Well I have many more HxH, but they are mostly just collection of characters out together. Nothing that amazing...
Good enough, thanks.
>Shinbo will never direct anything again
KyoAni is so shit now. If Takemoto and Yamada leave, animation is all they have left. Not to mention their quality has been so-so recently.
I agree those two are half the talent at KyoAni, but I think we just have to wait for them to pick up something good. TLS was pretty high-tier, and that was this year. Maybe they'll put out something phenonemal soon. Seems to be like an every other year kind of deal now.
No, Bakemonogatari was directed by Tatsuya Oishi and Nisemonogatari (along with all following Monogatari sequels) was directed by Tomoyuki Itamura. Shinbo slaps his name on every Shaft show, but he isn't the actual director for, well, anything they do. His work there is more akin to a producer.
Use your brain, and google, a little. Of course Shinbo has directed stuff. He's directed since the 90's and has used several aliases, one of which he used to direct hentai. Now, he's like a mentor to all the directors at SHAFT. His influence on the industry is pretty noticeable since he trains so many people.
Your picture's aspect ratio is wrong.
I loved the ending in the first episode.
