Great article forwarded to me by Brent Shock: Read and discuss

Hey all –

Here’s a link to a story I heard on NPR this morning about framing/creating video in the era of iPhones, cell phones, Myspace and YouTube. The ever smaller viewing screen is forcing directors to break the rules. Rules like framing in the center instead of the thirds, dropping long shots and using an abundance of extreme close ups.

I found it interesting and I thought you might enjoy.


PS: I’m sticking to the thirds. J
