EXCERPTS >|< As It Is In Live (1912)

A series of gifs excerpted from As It Is In Life: a film directed by D. W. Griffith in that incredibly rich and innovative period of his tenure at Biograph, from 1908 to 1913.
With its conventional plot, As it is in Life would not be held in particularly high regard today for its narrative advances or character development. It is, however, remarkable for its use of a location, in this case the California Pigeon Farm, which Griffith uses to visually breathtaking effect. Indeed, the film seems to have been built around the fact that Griffith and company had access to film at the pigeon farm. With its seemingly hundreds of birds flying and fluttering around in the background, Griffith achieves a total sense of movement within these shots.

Una serie di gif estratte da As It Is In Life: un film diretto da DW Griffith in quel periodo incredibilmente ricco e innovativo del suo mandato alla Biograph, dal 1908 al 1913.
Con la sua trama convenzionale, As it is in Life non verrà ricordato soprattutto oggi per i suoi progressi narrativi o lo sviluppo dei caratteri. È tuttavia, notevole per il suo uso di una location - la California Pigeon Farm - che Griffith utilizza per effetti visivi mozzafiato. Con le  centinaia di uccelli svolazzanti in giro in background, Griffith raggiunge un totale senso di movimento all’interno di queste scene.
