Kubrick's One-Point Perspective

by Anna Berken in


Among Kubrick's notable innovations in cinematography are his use of special effects, as in 2001, where he used both slit-scan photography, front-screen projection, and his notorius use of "one-point perspective," which leads the viewer's eye towards a central vanishing point. The technique relies on creating a complex visual symmetry using parallel lines in a scene which all converge on that single point, leading away from the viewer.
