Colin. interesting learning material. Then again (generally speaking) you could also say watching a feature that is set up this way is made for a 'lazy' audience. And if I remember correct, in most countries they read fom left to right. It is (has gotten) natural for a lot of (do not read Chinese) people to start focussing their eyes on the left; it gives the storyteller - director/camera man/cutter- the freedom of 'leading us' from on place/image to an other...
Totally correct, but what Wes Anderson does is lead the viewer's focus with track and dolly, job or panning from one side of the screen, or top or bottom, to then stop with the main subject dead center. It's always been his signature style and is always fun to see what he comes up with next.
Ok, I get it! It is "part" of his shot(s)! :)
Loved that. Thanks for sharing it.
