A film is – or should be – more like music than like fiction. It should be a progression of moods and feelings. The theme, what’s behind the emotion, the meaning, all that comes later. - Stanley Kubrick
Can the effect, mood or theme of cinematic expression be captured in stills? We think so.
By dramatic composition, strategic lighting or use of color, a still camera can beautifully generate all the thrill, drama or romance of a moving picture, but in one single frame.
Artists understand the camera’s potential to record actions and tell stories, so we invite you to submit your own photos that do so with cinematic style. Moments of high drama, slapstick farce, horror or suspense are all fair game!
