Yann Arthus-Bertrand is primarily a photographer and his movies are like photographs. So why is it that you probably can watch a picture for a long time without being bored but find this movie too slow?It’s a masterpiece of stunning cinematography.
I am amazed by the scenery.
I wish I had not been trained by Pepsi commercials to expect to get through 100 shots in 15 seconds, but it’s slow and with no narrator or poem it’s tough to follow the glacier slow movement , but immensely artistic and beautiful scenes so meticulously and parsimoniously revealed by brilliant camera movements.
I can take this for 15 minutes max. But I have a ruined psyche and can’t ingest, taste, enjoy and consume it fast enough!
Thanks, Jérôme,Yann Arthus-Bertrand is primarily a photographer and his movies are like photographs. So why is it that you probably can watch a picture for a long time without being bored but find this movie too slow?
I'll argue that, it is a question of size and context. Photographs (and paintings!) are not experienced in the same manner when printed out large. This is the same for this movie: try experiencing in a theater (even a home theater) and it engulfs you. Looking at in on the small screen of a computer or, even worse, a smartphone is bound to be frustrating.
Aha, Antonio!Myself I have not seen the document from the beginning to the end in only one session. It was seen in parts.
The zoom - or should I say the movement - of the frame while the picture is running is very interesting, even if the picture itself is a "movement"
In a few words: the video is very dynamic !
LR doesn't do that kind of work (travellings and zooms) in pictures at least with that freedom... It is something I would like to try my some of my shots
Nothing fancy, complicated or costly needed. I have created Slideshows including the Ken Burns effect, on both my MacBook and IPad. For quick and easy, on my iPad or phone - I just use the stock Photos folder to generate a slideshow, and record the screen with the built-in recorder. If I want more control, free iMovie works great. I use LumaFusion on my iPad for most of my video production - and full keyframing is available to move pics around like Ken Burns —- but it is more manual work than the automation in iMovie.Thank you Jerome !
How could I not remember iMovie ?
