Stanley Kubrick - The One Point Perspective


The one point perspective is a film technique in which a director focuses on one point in the background of a shot, no matter how busy the action in the scene may be. It picks out a destination and focuses on that point, and the actors & actresses seem to play off of that spot. I am a huge fan of Stanley Kubrick, yet I must admit that I had never realized just how much he employs the one point perspective technique. This video by Kogonada shows just how often Kubrick has employed this technique over the years, and when you see these familiar scenes once again you will see them in a whole new light. Check out the video after the jump...
