Class notes

Title Sequence - film, tv, video game

-thumbnails (several different ideas, by hand)
-roughs (more sketches but work all the way through)

(15-20 frames)

- final digital (illustrator)
1. dimension - aspect ratio

  4:3 (old television ratios)
16:9 - cinema proportions

1.33:1  (good for talking heads, good for when the shots is constantly moving)
1.78:1 (longer shot, lawrence of arabia like scenes)

640 x 480
800 x 600
1024 x 768 (average)
1600 x 1200 (metropolitan areas)
1920 x 1600

To make 4:3 fit into cinema:

4:3 with pillars

4:3 image stretched to fill a
16:9 screen

4:3 image zoomed to fill a
16:9 screen


Letterbox: When you take large format and shrink it down to fit smaller.

Pan and Scan : zooming in on particular images/shots
3. Safe Area
put them in the middle so they don't get chopped
basic rule of how long to leave the words on the screen - long enough so that you (the designer) can read through it 3 times over (this is about how long someone else who has never read the text before takes to read it for the first time)
