Expressive Spaces in Digital 3d Cinema (Hardcover) (Owen Weetch)
About this item
This book puts forward a more considered perspective on 3D, which is often seen as a distracting gimmick at odds with artful storytelling in the cinema. Owen Weetch looks at how stereography brings added meaning and nuance to individual films that all showcase remarkable uses of the format. Avatar, Gravity, The Hole,The Great Gatsby and Frozen all show that stereography is a rich and sophisticated process that gives extra meaning to a film’s narrative and themes. Through close reading of these five very different digital 3D films, Expressive Spaces in Digital 3D Cinema shows how being sensitive to stereographic manipulation can nuance and enrich the critical appreciation of stereoscopic films. It demonstrates that the expressive placement of characters and objects within 3D film worlds can construct meaning in ways that that are unavailable to ‘flat’ cinema.
