The film industry is a relatively new one; the first films that were ever produced are just over a century old and we can see that there has been a massive change between the way people produced films back them to how we produce them now.
With the advancement of technology comes the advancement of filming methods (as well as storing) and we have finally reached the point where high frame rate films are being produced for Hollywood. But what is a high frame rate and will it become the future of filmmaking?
What is a High Frame Rate?
A high frame rate is one that is faster than standard motion picture frame rates. In the traditional filming of films and televisions, the frame rate is typically set to 24 frames per second, or FPS. Some cinematics films have now been produced with a 30 FPS filming techniques, due to the higher quality of equipment that is being used.
How High is Too High?
Recently, Peter Jackson filmed The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey in a higher frame rate of 48 FPS, which has mixed review as some film watchers believed that the film seemed too lifelike. However, in 2016, legendary director Ang Lee released Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk, and it turned out that it was filmed with 120 FPS filming techniques; five times faster than traditional film.
With technology becoming more precise and being able to perform such impeccable techniques, such as 120 FPS filming, we will undoubtedly start to see more films being released at high frame rates; something that our eyes may not be used to yet.
