Stlls from films. A possible light diagram of a scene from Moonrise Kingdom

Cinematography: Robert D. Yeoman
Camera: Aaton A-Minima, Aaton Xterá
Lenses: Zeiss Super Speed, Canon CnE
Aspect ratio: 1.85:1
Film Stock: Kodak Vision 7213 200T

The aesthetic of Moonrise Kingdom, directed by Wes Anderson,  definitely manages to catch audience attention: the election and look of 16mm film, the constant use of wide angle lenses, the position of the camera always in front of the action, as it was the 4th wall of a theatre, are the main characteristics of this feature that can be noticed in this screen shot above too. The composition is brilliant: the wide angle lens makes the place appear bigger than it really is and changes the relative proportions between the children and B. Murray who is perfectly centred in the frame and with the stairs and, thanks to the focal lens used, loses a bit of the threatening look the low angle camera gives him. Light is really soft and natural (justified as typical house lighting) with a warm colour balance; a multi lighting set up was used in this scene.
