Single point perspective in the films of Stanly Kubric

[ A+ ] /[ A- ]

In this weeks class we’re introducing the principles of perspective, with an emphasis on using perceived/impressionistic rather than optical/mathematical applications in our art. But i Also wanted to make a point about the value of the humble single point perspective technique, and how in many cases it’s very powerful by itself. This clip is a great example, it cuts together shots from the films of Stanley Kubrick, who was a heavy user of single point and lenses with little distortion. Kogonada’s excellent Kubrick // One-Point Perspective from his series on film making.
