4K resolution is a popular new filming technique, yet nobody seems to know what it is. The technique primarily consists of a higher frame rate and clearer image. It’s used by multiple mainstream movies such as The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 and The Dark Knight Rises, but why are directors spending millions of dollars on this technique if it’s not going to be appreciated? So many people believe new filming techniques are important but hardly anyone is aware of 4K resolution.
“I don’t know of any new filming techniques but they’re definitely important in our advancement of technology,” sophomore Anna Zelenski said. “Our expectations get higher and new techniques are essential for improving the quality of movies we watch.”
Some students however, know vaguely about 4K and new techniques and believe the advances to be very important.
“All I know is that 4K improves the quality of the image,” sophomore Damir Hrnjez said. “But the additions are worth the money. People may not know the technology, but they want better images and viewing experience.”
Hrnjez also stressed that the film industry needs to focus on stronger plots and ideas, as well as creating 6D movies, a more immersive experience.
“The implementation of the audience in 6D movies would be cool, so the audience feels as if they are in the film,” Hrnjez said.
Sophomore Diego Ignacio is also familiar with the filming technique, and believes that the cost of 4K is worth it.
“Movie tickets cost a lot of money, and people should be able to watch in high quality because of that. They should get their money’s worth,” Ignacio said.
