IDK theyre lookin pretty good to me
I lost my shit with some of those reveals
That is irrelevant, we have a medium that is vertical. Content will be made to fit that medium.
The point isn't "which one is better or more natural", you're welcome to argue about that but I'd say its a waste of time...
It's just a fact that they both exist and have different purposes. Depending on your needs you might embrace that purpose. This isn't rocket science.
Thanks for this article, too many people only know how to parrot common sense rhetoric.
"Flming vertically, he deserves to die haahaha"
It's just a tool, with a niche but rising use. People need to get over themselves.
If you are filming an ad to be played on an instagram story, what kind of moron is going to force a tiny horizontal frame over the full screen vertical? Hell if you are filming your own instagram story, you film it vertically... it can't all be cinema, more and more content of all kinds are going to keep on existing and surging.
Face it... it's a new medium. Doesn't mean that vertical is going to take over our narrative media, but it exists. There is no denying that and when people are paying you to produce vertical content, good luck explaining to them that "horizontal is superior".
I think it's more that you shouldn't be arrogant to the point to think that you're taste dictates what is good or bad.
There are technically well constructed films that have fallen flat for me, there are some that I feel are even arrogant or pretentious. But then I hear people say they same about other films I love. In some cases it really is just a matter of different people valuing different things and being effected differently.
The problem is that people are egocentric, they write reviews stating "my problems" with a film as if that has any relevance. There might be some valid points to be made but at the day you are not going to react to a film the same as everyone else.
It's a sliding scale, there is a point where most can generally agree that something bad is bad... but then there are still some innocents who "never listen to critics because they are always wrong" that still think its good. So just defend the films you think you need to defend and who cares about anything else.
