Ink Drawing & Passive Direction
These drawings by Patrick Dew, emerging artist, are an exercise / attempt at passive directing. Films used to be commonly ‘ruined’ for television with a method called pan and scan. Each shot with in the film is cropped and the ‘camera’ moved throughout the frame in order to place the film with in the tv friendly ratio. This result is “passive directing,” as framing is not done by the director.
