Where else can I rant but Mudcat.
I just fell across a prog on ITV called "May the Best House Win". I have no idea what it's about but I won't be able to watch it for long. The camera work and editing is atrocious, whip pans, clumsy reframing, subject looking out of frame, cutting to and from pans and zooms. Endless classic errors of picture composition. It is common in cookery programmes to suffer random zooms and soft focus shots and, of course, looking at anything rather that what is being demonstrated.I would have thought that with all the "Media Studies" graduates these days there might be a move to higher standards not a concerted effort to incorporate all the bad points of the art of cinematography.
I just popped back to see if my first impressions were fair and realised the whole programme is based on knocking someone elses outmoded taste. Hmm, perhaps they just don't like making television programmes properly either.
There I feel better now!!
