This is Cinematic Aspect Ratios Explained — Aspect ratios in filmmaking and cinematography are not just technical jargon, there is real visual storytelling value in which aspect ratio you choose. But what is aspect ratio today? Despite TVs being designed to accommodate widescreen filmmaking, they typically default to a 16:9 aspect ratio, which often compromises the filmmaker’s original vision. Today, we’re going to look at the 2:1 or 18:9 aspect ratio, how it might just be the perfect happy medium and why filmmakers like David Fincher and Ari Aster are switching over.

Legendary cinematographer Vittorio Storaro first devised the 2:1 aspect ratio in the ‘90s when he saw that the future of TV sets and programming were being standardized at 16:9. Storaro figured since movies would all end up being watched on TV anyway, it might be a good idea to start shooting movies with that in mind. Storaro’s 2:1 aspect ratio, which he dubbed Univisium, never really took off. Until today.

Netflix series like House of Cards and Stranger Things have embraced the 2:1 aspect ratio. 2:1 combines the width of 2.35:1 and the height of 1.85:1, bridging the gap and providing a cinematic aspect ratio that any film can use. David Fincher brought this cinematic aspect ratio to House of Cards, the Duffer Brothers used it for Stranger Things, Ari Aster chose it for Hereditary and Midsommar, and Colin Trevorrow shot Jurassic World in 2:1.

So, now that you can answer “what is aspect ratio and why does it matter,” which aspect ratio will you choose for your next project? Will you stick with standard formats like 1.85:1 or 2.35:1, or will you find a happy medium in the 2:1 aspect ratio?
