  How to Read a Frame
Film gauge is the size and dimension of the film frame.
With respect to closed/open frame, the frame can be composed to create a real feeling of openness by having the character in the middle of the frame and having nothing on either edge.
Sometimes the frame can be composed to create an effect of internal framing, where a character is framed by, for example, a doorway or window; this creates a frame within a frame and tends to emphasize the character, drawing our attention particularly to him or her.

 Frequently Asked Questions
After the film is developed at the laboratory, it is slit down the middle and the pieces are spliced together, resulting in an 8mm film.
The film itself comes either wound tightly around a plastic `core,' for loading into a camera magazine (either in a darkroom, or a portable `changing bag'), or, for 100' and 200' lengths, mounted on small metal spools (like those for regular 8mm), which can be loaded into the camera in moderately bright daylight.
Films shot in 16mm almost always run at 24 frames per second (fps), with the exception of many silent home movies which are sometimes shot at 16 fps.

 Film Frame Dimensions
From the late 1890's up thru approximately 1952, the 35mm film frame saw just three variations, the original 1.33:1 silent aperture, the briefly used (1930-31) "Movietone" semi-square frame, and the "Academy aperture" with an aspect ratio of 1.37:1.
This was abandoned in favor of magnetic sound stripes on the film which slightly reduced the width of the image to 2.55:1.
A few films were printed in 8 perf in Europe but the system was quickly abandoned as, like VistaVision, the conventional 35mm print proved to be exceptional.

 Materials for Students: Writing in the Humanities: Writing about Film
Film is so familiar and so prevalent in our lives that we are often lulled into passive viewing (at worst) or into simple entertainment (at best).
All films have distribution and release histories: some films are released to different generations of audiences, to wildly different responses; other films are banned because they threaten certain cultural values.
Other films are not overtly political, but they still promote certain values: Mary Poppins, for example, argues for the idea that fathers need to take a more active interest in their families.

 24 Frame Progressive vs 30 Frame Interlaced
TV with its higher frame rate of 30 frames per second (fps) requires that the 24 frame film image be converted to 30 fps with a 3:2 pull-down.
Part of that is because each frame, of the 24 fps, was photographed in approximately 1/48 of a second and scanned in a progressive manner and converted to interlace for the NTSC system.
In a television image (not from film), it is impossible to combine two fields to make one frame or picture for moving objects, as each field comes from a different moment in time.

The film was shown in three projectors on a huge curved screen, the only use of a curved screen until OMNIMAX in 1973.
Many movies are filmed this way, and the director composes the shots with the knowledge that the film will be cropped two different ways during transfer to cinema and video formats (a sort of double soft-matting) An excellent example of this is Cameron's Titanic (1997).

Telecine Process- 3-2 pull down- each frame of video has two fields (Odd and Even) So the first film frame gets two fields and the next frame gets 3 fields…next 2, next three etc. In this fashion the video frame rate is matched to the film frame rate.
This assures that each numeric value is assigned to a particular frame of video independent of the 'counter' on the VCR or tape that might stretch etc. THis expediates the rough cut process and gives you a reference to create your EDL.
Drop frame - often destined for video/ TV broadcast: a frame is dropped periodically in order to account for external sync errors.
