Re: New aspect ratio announcement...

yeah, just did the same. My son is a big offender. Every video he does of his youngest daughter (she's 4 and a real character with all kinds of personality) I yell at him about the dreaded VERTICAL VIDEO!!!!! Maybe this will set him on the right path! ;-)

Re: New aspect ratio announcement...

It's becoming increasingly common in programmes that use a lot of material shot by the public on phones.

Just looking at some early Orson Welles films on BBC2 again, they make great use of framing the verticals and having characters on different levels with the 4 x 3 aspect ratio.

The vertical video only really works as part of a wider format, which allows dynamic use of the vertical panels. As a stand alone format it's pretty limited, although there always exceptions that work on their own terms, but in the end the world is mostly horizontal err... landscape.

I don't see what all the fuss is about. The original Baird television format was vertical. In the early nineteen thirties they transmitted plays, light entertainement and horse races in this format.

Brilliant writing and acting...thanks for sharing!

I wonder why they had to use the checkerboard pattern - was it all shot in one take?
