Re: Trip & T'Pol: The Good That They Do

While it is true about film (actually moreso TV since film actually is large and wide and they have more room) and the need for setting up actors closer together, I think in some of those pics they really didn't quite need them standing so close together. The wider shots had plenty of room for them to spread out. Though I suppose they'd want the wider shots to match the closer up shots so they'd have to set them up in the same positions... However, I think at least a couple of those shots were intentional... especially the one at the desk from "Oasis".

There are also lots of instances of them just stepping in and getting into each other's personal space... and often to get more face to face too. The first few that come to mind are "Broken Bow", "Breaking the Ice" and "Horizon".

Comes down to that "chemistry" thing, I think... the thing JB and CT had no idea was happening, but that the directors may have been seeing in the dailies, and incorporating in subsequent blocking for later episodes... who knows?

^^ Perhaps. I just know they always seemed to stand out in their scenes together even from the very beginning. At least for me they did.

Just thought I'd add a pic of my own to the mix. This is a non-calendar version of the wallpaper I made for the Trip/T'Polers calendar... I still want to add some sort of text but I can't make up my mind about what to use. Here it is anyway.



And a link to the full size version

^^ That's one of the ones I was thinking of. So maybe it's a sign that I should go for that one? Three people in a row thinking the same thing?

I love the pink fuzzy bits around the outside. I'd love to know how you do that.

Hoshi's Sis I used a texture made by wonderland__ . I'll put a link to where I got it from when I put the wallpaper up at my site. Then I used different colors and brushes to reveal bits of the texture here and there.

^^ Cool! Though I think Johnny might make it back soon judging from your avatars of late.

Re: Trip & T'Pol: The Good That They Do

Lovely wallpaper, boushh. :thumbsup:


And thanks for the "Standing Together" pics, HR. My screencap collection from later seasons is a bit slim right now (supplemented by a few I grabbed from you and others ). Must be a lot of those standing together type photos from seasons 3 & 4 given the nature of the T/T storyline.

Actually... One of the few things I learned in film was that you have to make people be unnaturally close together to get them both in the same shot unless you're too far away to see them clearly.

Yeah, I expect there're probably some very practical reasons that they position the actors certain ways, but at times, I think there could be other factors as well. Sometimes it can be a shorthand way of "showing" how the characters are relating to each other and who knows, maybe it also could be done at times because someone thinks they just look good together, and aesthetics matter, too.

But seriously, in late S1 and much of S2 when they really weren't "actively" developing the Trip/T'Pol relationship, I think some of the "standing together" poses and looks between them was just a simple way of conveying that they were becoming more comfortable with each other and learning to work together -- without the writers having to devote major scenes or dialogue to it.


And I think a lot of the body language between Trip and T'Pol actually fit well with the push-pull type nature of the relationship. A lot of standing together but also standing toe to toe and face to face (like boushh mentioned), which sort of symbolized that they were drawn to each other but also challenged (and sometimes frustrated) by the differences. Hmmm...I think I also may need a "Standing Face to Face" collection.


Broken Bow Decon


Broken Bow Bridge Scene -- I think this was the scene during which BBraga commented (on the DVD commentary) about the actors' chemistry and how sometimes you don't know about these things until you see it on camera (or something like that)....


Strange New World


Unexpected


IAMD I



And for grins, how about a "standing together" picture from Harbinger.


And to show I'm not totally biased, here's one of my favorite caps of Trip and Amanda.

I have to agree on that. He looks positively yummy...

That's one of my favorite TnT pics, though. Look at them. They look so angry at whatever they're staring at...
