Everything you create to tell the story – from the actor’s performances to the set design is captured within the boundaries of the frame. Over the years, movies and television shows have been shot on numerous formats, and learning how to convert, adjust, and frame for these formats can be a challenge.Contact us today for more information about the New Orleans Media Arts Institute.

In this module, you will learn how to identify and work with different aspect ratios, manage conversions from film to HD, NTSC to HD, title safe requirements, and how various aspect ratios are adjusted for different exhibition and broadcast formats.

Avoid mistakes and create an artistically pleasing image in the complex and ever-changing canvas we call the frame.
