This is something that has always interested me. Why do movies like movies? I see people everywhere, myself included, trying to capture that 'movie look'. Now, I don't think there's an explicit definition of what that is. To some extent it's something very subjective and the main aspects that build that look may vary from person to person. I do think, however, that it's universally recognizable when it's there. In terms of amateur filmmaking, some claim that shooting at 24fps does the job, but does it really? There's gotta be more to it. What is it that amateur films lack in their look? How can they achieve it? What's their 'problem'? Is it the excessive color grading, in some cases? The lack of fine grain? I'd love to hear your opinions on the subject. Thanks for reading.
