🎥 Director Traits: Stanley Kubrick
Stanley Kubrick was well known for being a perfectionist and for his meticulous detailed framing work. Each frame had to be exactly the way he wanted it and that is why he almost always had fights with his cinematographers.
Kubrick was known for used the one-point perspective and symmetry to focus the viewer’s attention on a single object on screen. He was known for wanting the film frames to look almost like paintings which is why his shots were almost always centered and focused on the subject in the middle.
After he implemented this technique and his work became more well known and respected, we saw a lot of directors begin to adapt this framing method to different degrees of success, most notably Wes Anderson and his symmetrical shots.
Kubrick is still my all-time favourite film-maker and this was just one of the many many things that put him above the rest.
