In this video by John Hess from Filmmaker IQ, you will see how 120 fps affects the experience of watching a film in a way you probably haven't thought before.
At first, I thought about "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug" and "Public Enemies" and was ready to skip the video, proudly declaring "I know it all." Nevertheless, I decided to watch it until the end, because Hess has always interesting points, even on well-known topics. If you have worked with VFX and 3D in your filmmaking, you know that high frame rate (HFR) has its place in the digital universe. It delivers footage with less motion blur, which makes it easier for keying out actors and objects on scenes filmed on chroma key backgrounds. The good news for the lovers of the 24 fps look is that you can convert the footage back to your favorite frame rate speed and add motion blur. Everyone who has compared 24 to 50 or 60 fps knows the difference and how the HFR version "looks too real" and kind of like a TV soap opera. This is not what amazed me from John Hess' review. It was his perception of the quality of acting of experienced celebrity actors. The 120 fps didn't work in their favor, but made them look anything but A-list actors. It is surprising to see how the same acting performance can feel cheap or cinematic just because of the frame rate speed.
Did you have such an experience with high frame rate movies, especially with "Gemini Man""
