Willem Oorebeek

He opts for illustrations, passages of writing, or manipulated images that have an autonomy without being too recognisable or seductive. Although images in general only have any meaning in a particular context or when linked to specific information, Oorebeek gives the images he chooses a certain independence. His selection thus also implies a value judgement, which he simultaneously confirms and undermines by the way he deals with them. // Worst by Willem Oorebeek. Paddle8.

Frame rate

Frame rate (Hertz/Hz)

  • Flicker rate is 30hz = 30 frames per second
  • Analogue television broadcast = 50 Hz or 60 Hz
  • Movie = 24 frames per second
  • 48fps Movie
  • 24 fps “Temporal Resolution = measures the quantity of information within a period of time (source)
  • Spatial resolution measures the quantity of information within a Space (the number of pixels inside a frame).
  • shooting and exhibiting it at 24fps helps to achieve this stylized effect
  • create a sort of psychological distance to the viewer from the images.
  • “reality filter”, distance effect, actually helps the viewer to immerse much more on the film
  • 24fps is less information for the brain to process, watching content at 24fps will put your brain in a more relaxed state, similar to hypnosis.
