Bob Campbell, the fantastic.

We had a lecture today on what is cinematic space, led by Bob Campbell. He explained to us what is cinematic space. He gave a full insight on what is cinematic space, and the study of film.
One of the things I took away from his lecture was that film/cinematic space is moving poetry without words. It's like reciting a poem, but express only through movement.
I also took away understanding film more. He broke down the rule of thirds and showed consciously or unconsciously what shows the character's feeling (or how the director wants you to feel). And, this all depends on where you hold the camera! If you have the eyes around the the upper line in the rule of thirds, it means the character feels a positive feeling, and if the eyes are around the lower line of the rule of thirds, it means that the character feels a negative feeling.

How cool.
