Creator’s magic

1) Depth- Almost every high-profile film is now released in 3D. Scenes in classic 2D films, on he other hand, do not appear flat. The sense of space between the scene’s background, midground, and foreground is created by the positioning of items on the visual plane.

The Star Wars movies are littered with scenes that span large swaths of space and immense vistas. Take this shot of C-3PO and R2-D2 in the vast desert of Tatooine from Star Wars: A New Hope.

In the above scene, the two robotic foes appear to be approaching the spectator, while the wrecked starship is visible behind them in the distance. The illusion of distance is produced by placing C-3PO and R2-D2 in better focus in the foreground, their appearance rendered three-dimensional by the application of light and shadow, giving their bodies a rounded look. Meanwhile, the ship in the distance appears flat and unfocused.

2) Contrast- Contrast is created by juxtaposing contrasting visual elements. The juxtaposition of the two elements, especially two things of contrasting proportions, can produce a threatening mood or one of wonder and sublimity.

There are numerous situations in the Star Wars films that contrast enormous spacecraft with smaller ones. Our band of heroes is placed aboard a small transport adjacent to Jabba the Hutt’s much larger ship in this scene from Return of the Jedi.

3) Perspective- Perspective allows certain items to appear more dominant depending on where they are positioned, resulting in dynamic and visually fascinating compositions. Whether it’s a one-point or two-point perspective, lines are utilized to direct it. The exterior and interior shots of the ships, taken from dramatic perspectives, were part of what made the Star Wars films so epic. Take a look at this image from Return of the Jedi of the second Death Star’s reactor core:

The straight lines of the reactor core point downward in an arrow shape, creating the perspective of looking down. The effect is enhanced by the use of light that draws the viewer’s eye to the focal point of the shot, at the base of the core.

Depth plays into perspective as well, as the size and placement of objects in the background, midground and foreground contribute to the illusion of perspective.
