Term: Flat Space

Share This
« Back to Glossary Index

This term describes a certain form of mise en scène, which severely limits the available space within the frame in a striking way, resulting in a very small spatial scope for the characters within it. For creating this effect, limitation along the z-axis is most effective. For example, this can be achieved by filming a character standing in front of a wall. The opposite of flat space is deep space.
