A typical movie runs at the rate 24 frames per second. This is how many your eye needs to perceive it as a constant movement. So the rumor goes, if you make a movie with 25 frames per second, you cannot consciously perceive the 25th frame anymore. But your unconsciousness captures it. It sticks to your memory and influences you, so this technique can be used as a very powerful tool of propaganda. As far as I know, this is nothing but a rumor, but the idea is fascinating.
The purpose of my movie review blog is to uncover the ’25th frame’ – what is hidden beneath the surface of the movie? What is the message?
I am an amateur (hence the title), so this is primarily done for my own enjoyment.
Occasionally, I might post some of my university assignments, but I will try to keep them cinema related. I am currently 21 and studying at Maastricht University.
