The experiment of «One film, three visions» is a research essay which explores in an empirical methodology the role of the cinematographer in narrative cinema. The exercise is based on the poem Déjeuner du Matin by Jacques Prévert. The film is shot in three times, with the same director, same script, same actors, same set, same crew and with the same editor. The only difference between the three films is the cinematographer. Each film is shot by a different cinematographer. Each film is three minutes long.
This study observes in practice the subject of authorship and the contribution of the cinematographer to narrative cinema. Not only centered about authorship but also adds the question of audience perception. The use of different sets of lighting, the different setups of camera angles and much more leads audiences to have a different perception from each of the films. The interpretation given by each cinematographer in terms of lighting, composition and camera movement has certainly a direct impact on audience perception in terms of mood and sensations.
