I am just planning a short promotional vid for a website a friend has started, justfortheloveofit.org
I want to do it in silent movie style - so what do people think makes the silent look?
Obviously the processing in post is straightforward, i was thinking more of the cinemaphotography.
I was thinking 'procenium arch' type filming.
Mostly med / med long shots. Still camera. No zooms / pans / dollys / some poor continuity maybe / maybe some jerky sudden camera moves. all shot off a tripod.
Anything else ?
