Hey Brooke, do you happen to know what the average shot length in a modern film is? Compared with one from like 50 years ago? What's does the change between them - if there is one - signify?

Hey!!

Modern films are actually cut quite rapidly. I think the ASL for a modern film is like 2 seconds. 

Comparing from 50 to even 100 years ago, ASL’s have always been semi-varied. It really depended on the director or genre of film. However, early films were cut quicker (ASL of 4-6 seconds) until the invention of sound where I think it went up to like 11 seconds. When they had to add in all the audio they kind of lengthened the ASL. 

But really, I think the significance on the change of ASL is due to both the choice of the director and the technology.

Some directors tend to use longer shot lengths for cinematic or dramatic purposes, eg. action movies are cut quicker than dramas. Even in like 1915 Soviet directors realized that shot length could affect the emotional outcome of a film. The films in the Soviet film era tended to change quickly between slower ASL’s to quicker edits. 

TL;DR

So, really, its all about aesthetics, the genre, and the directors vision of the film that really influenced the average shot lengths :)

Oh My Gosh — It’s BATH DAY at the Night Vale SPCA!!
This week’s kitten for adoption is Zephyr!  This little brown cutie is squeaky clean and ready for a loving new home!
Want to adopt? Here’s how:
Like and Reblog, and Comment on the weeks question:  We need more volunteers to help us wash all the animals in time for Halloween!  Can you soak a snake? Suds a salamander or siamese?  Trim cactus’s nails?  Come pitch in!  Tell us what kind of critter you’d like to help bathe!!
You don’t have to follow to adopt, but a new kitten will be made available each week through Halloween, so you might want to…
Adopter will be notified via their Ask box
I’ll announce the adopter and post the next kitten for adoption on Oct 27th
Adopter will receive their new pet and adoption certificate as well as instructions on completing the bloodstone promise. Submitting pics is highly encouraged!!
Our budget will allow one adoption out of the US, so this is open to all until an out of the US adoption occurs.
Eep! We had an out of US adoption, so now adoptions are open to just the US.
(The Night Vale SPCA is a community service to citizens of Night Vale - no adoption fees are necessary or accepted. I believe the peoples of Tumblr call it a ‘giveaway’.)

ZOMG! We already have a volunteer to give the brontosaurus a pedicure! I’ll warm up the belt sander!!  Thank you !!

I’m more than willing to hand bathe the four-tusked, four-eyed woolly mammoth!
