Por petición popular, vamos a hablar de un efecto cinematográfico muy específico: el travelling compensado, zolly, efecto vértigo, retrozoom, o más conocido por el término en inglés, el #DollyZoom. ¿Qué es? ¿Cómo se consigue? ¿Cómo se utiliza? ¡Abrimos hilo!
#cinematografía #hilo
El "dolly zoom" combina efectivamente estos dos recursos básicos de cámara:
- el dolly, la traslación de la cámara hacia adelante o hacia atrás
- el zoom: el cambio de la longitud de la focal de la lente
#cinematografía #rodaje #DollyZoom #cine #MovimientosDeCámara
Es fácil entender que el "dolly shot" cambia el plano porque se acerca o aleja del sujeto. Se suele hacer poniendo la cámara sobre ruedas o railes, para que el movimiento sea suave.

1/210: Markus Kerber's Apollo 13

In March 2020, the German Ministry of the Interior @BMI_Bund issued a #strategypaper that weaponized fear in order to accomplish compliance with #COVID policies. The authors' emails were litigated under #FOIA request. My analysis. #MEGATHREAD ⬇️ Image
2/210: The @BMI_Bund emails have been released to the public as they were successfully sued by lawyer Niko Härting in a FOIA proceeding. They can be requested directly from @BMI_Bund/ @rki_de via @fragdenstaat. Download it here: bit.ly/3knoa6Y bit.ly/3Bd0rgj Image
3/210: The emails originated March 19-25, 2020. They are so explosive because they map the inner discourse of the @BMI_Bund's now infamous #COVID-19 taskforce, which produced several crucial domestic policy documents. bit.ly/2TT3R7O @OttoKolbl

Apollo 13: Celebrating Splashdown!

In the 1st picture, NASA notes that Haise is ascending in a "Billy Pugh" net to the Navy recovery helicopter, while Lovell and Swigert wait in the life raft. The 2nd picture shows a joyous celebration inside the MOCR in Houston, Texas. 1/10
Gene Kranz is celebrating in the foreground, with Deke Slayton and others in the background.

The crew and flight controllers had earned this celebration. Apollo 13's mission ended with one final hair raising event. 2/10
All spacecraft reentering Earth's atmosphere experience a blackout period, where the spacecraft is out of contact with mission control. Odyssey took longer than normal to emerge from the radio blackout caused by the ionization of the atmosphere around the spacecraft. 3/10

I saw the movie #Apollo13 with #LunarModule Program Director #JoeGavin. Now it’s time to tell the forgotten story—which that film doesn’t show—of how he & his #Grumman #Team helped rescue the astronauts with a #LMLifeboat while the world watched: andrewerickson.com/2020/04/apollo… #Apollo50
Five decades ago, during the aborted #Apollo13 mission of April 1970, #Grumman Aerospace Corporation’s #LunarModule saved 3 astronauts by becoming a lifeboat-tugboat. Throughout the crisis, #LM Program Director #JoeGavin manned his post @NASA’s #MissionControl Center in #Houston.
Gavin led a multi-hundred-person team in Houston & Bethpage, NY to help coordinate assessment & use of the #LM’s capabilities for emergency #LunarLifeboat role.

Gavin, virtually all of his colleagues + contemporaries & #Grumman itself have subsequently departed from the scene.

If you begin Ron Howard's brilliant film, #Apollo13 at 9:17pm ET tonight, Tom Hanks will utter the infamous, "Houston, we have a problem" line *exactly* 50 years after Jim Lovell said it for real - 10:08pm, on April 13, 1970.
If you're watching #Apollo13 ‐ start the film now! 😁
"It's not a miracle. We just decided to go."

What a brilliant screenplay, this. #Apolo13

#Apollo13 NASA's most successful failure, l'échec le plus réussi de la @NASA. #OTD 11 avril 1970, 19:13 UTC : décollage de la fusée #SaturnV emportant la mission #Apollo13. Elle n'atteint pas la Lune mais les astronautes rentrent sains et saufs. Un #Thread à suivre... #Apollo50 ImageImageImageImage
#Apollo13 13 ? Décollage à 19:13 UTC. Les astronautes ne sont pas supersticieux. Et il y a souvent de petits imprévus. En nov. 69, #Apollo12 à été frappé 2 fois par la foudre juste après le lancement. Le centre de mission a perdu la télémétrie : #Apollo50 ImageImage
#Apollo13 : en période de #COVIDー19, un mot sur la rougeole. Initialement désigné pour la mission, Ken Mattingly a été remplacé par sa doublure, Jack Swigert, quelques jours avant le décollage : la NASA craignait qu'il ait attrapé la rougeole. Pas de chance ? #Apollo50 #Space Image

50 years ago this day, launch of #Apollo13.

@NASA's 3rd manned lunar landing mission, 3 days later, a freak accident damaged the service module while in the lunar orbit, 330,000 km away.

What followed was an amazing repair & recovery - from a major crisis to NASA's finest hour.
Will tweet more about this amazing mission, over the next few days.

Meanwhile, if you still haven't...do watch 'Apollo 13' directed by Ron Howard and starring @tomhanks!

One of my all time favorite films...must have watched it over a dozen times. imdb.com/title/tt011238…

El largometraje animado más antiguo que se conserva es "Las aventuras del príncipe Achmed" (1926), escrito y dirigido por la pionera animadora alemana Lotte Reiniger. Dura 65 minutos, el original estaba coloreado y empleaba una técnica de siluetas móviles que ella inventó. #cine
Las ondas en el vaso de agua fue uno de los efectos especiales más complejos de conseguir en #ParqueJurásico (1993). Tras probar muchas opciones finalmente se hizo haciendo vibrar una cuerda de guitarra bajo el coche.

The celebration of #Apollo11at50 is a recognition of America at her best—setting ambitious goals, charting new frontiers, and doing it as a team. Image
The backstories to the space program are inspiring, including the African American women depicted in #HiddenFigures.
And the story of #Apollo13 is equally powerful and illustrative of the American spirit—the ability to confront risks, work the problem, and develop solutions.

Reading some @NASAhistory, and was curious who this was...
Her name is Poppy Northcutt, and she's the first female engineer to work in Mission Control at @NASA_Johnson #Apollo8.
For half a century, pop culture has immortalized a group of quick-thinking, pocket-protected men as the face of NASA’s mission control room during the Apollo program. But amid this sea of men, was one woman: Frances “Poppy” Northcutt, engineer and return-to-Earth specialist #NASA

La leyenda urbana de que todos los relojes en Pulp Fiction están parados a las 4:20 es falsa. Algunos sí, pero no todos ni mucho menos. Hay relojes importantes en la trama que ni de cerca.
