note the twist on the title.
For a look at some thoughts on what Cinematographers and/or 3D aficionados...here's a snippet from my review (specifically on the stereoscopic 3D aspects)
The first image in this article shows what happens when you ‘Wall paper” the background into place. This was clearly noticeable in many of the Calcutta scenes, starting with Bruce Banner washing his hands/face and later when he’s in intense dialog with Scarlett in the run down shack. All that beautiful realism and immersion of the setting… reduced to flat draped wall paper in the background in many shots.
Is the background necessary when the Director wants the viewers to look at the characters speaking? You as a Cinematographer have to decide that.
No one has yet done conclusive studies of any distracting effect that peripheral or background imagery in abnormal stereoscopic 3D can have on the average audience.
My Hypothesis is that it can lead to “Dialog Processing Lag” in the brain.
The human visual cortex has been programmed over millions of years, to assess threat in the real world stereoscopically. Any anomaly in stereoscopic 3D would lead to a conversation between eye and brain as follows:
Examine scene—>Hmm, Scarlett! (Human)—->re-examine scene (as something looks odd in the background)—>discard—->concentrate back on Scarlett’s pout. = Dialog Lag. Of course all this happening in micro seconds.
Admittedly to a stereographer this is very disconcerting, being trained to look for anomalies, but the Cinematographer has to ask these questions:
