To me personally, with rectangular filmmaking, what the director puts in the frame is incredibly important to the storytelling process. But, what’s equally important is what the director leaves out of the frame. What you don’t see, is just as important as what you see because it makes you think and engages your imagination to construct what your eyes cannot see. It also drives home emotion and emphasis. Emotion from the actors, from the lighting, the scene and the frame — all incredibly important aspects in filmmaking.
