What is Anamorphic?
Can someone explain to me what is "anamorphic" and why is it loved by so many filmmakers?
I noticed that La La Land, which was shot on anamorphic, has distortion for straight lines which would normally require ultra-wide lenses (14mm+) to achieve, but Damien used a 40mm lens for this film. Is this a result of anamorphic?
The only thing I know about anamorphic is the lens flare streak.
Thanks for the help!
