Today, I had an exciting revelation that’s set to remake the way I approach film reviews. I’ve devised a unique rating system, the “Scenic Fitch Rating,” to evaluate movies based on their achievements in visual storytelling. This innovative approach promises to add a fresh layer of insight to my critiques and enhance the cinematic experience for both myself and my readers.
The Scenic Fitch Rating system operates on a scale from one to ten, with each film receiving a specific number of “scenic fitches.” But what exactly is a scenic fitch? Also known as “lining brushes,” these brushes are typically 1/4″ to 2″ in width and are primarily used to add highlights and shadows to a painting. They feature a long handle that tapers just right for attaching to a bamboo pole. For scenic artists and painters, mastering the art of using fitches on a pole can save both time and future backaches.
What sets scenic fitches apart is their ability to create smoother and longer lines in a stroke, thanks to their longer bristles. This design allows them to hold more paint and distribute it evenly, making them an invaluable tool in the scenic artist’s kit. They are a fundamental building block for bringing those breathtaking cinematic moments to life on the screen.
Now, the Scenic Fitch Rating will become a central part of my film reviews. A film’s rating will range from a minimum of three scenic fitches, indicating a consistent setting for the characters, to a perfect ten, celebrating designers who have displayed innovative techniques and a deep understanding of scenic practices. A rating of five will signify that the movie’s environments effectively express traits relevant to the character arcs.
With this new rating system in place, I’m excited to dive into the world of film with a fresh perspective. It’s a journey that promises to make every movie-watching experience even more engaging and enlightening. So, let’s embark on this cinematic adventure together and see how films fare on the Scenic Fitch Rating scale.
