Star Trek (TOS) als Cinerama Widescreen Panoramen


Weil Nick Acosta wissen wollte, wie das im klassischen 4:3 TV-Format gefilmte Star Trek (TOS) in Cinerama Widescreen ausgesehen hätte, hat er ein paar Szenzen zu breitbildformatigen Panoramen zusammengesetzt. Ich hab von TOS zwar alle Folgen gesehen, bin damit im Gegensatz zu TNG und DS9 aber nie so richtig warm geworden – in Cinerama könnte ich mir trotzdem ne Runde Binge-Watching vorstellen.

Forty eight years ago this week Star Trek debuted its first episode on NBC. The show, like all other shows at the time, was broadcast in the old style 4×3 aspect ratio. Using HD screen caps from my friends at, I created this project of what the show would have looked like in Cinerama widescreen. As a kid the show always felt bigger and more epic than it appears to me as an adult. I was able to create these shots by waiting for the camera to pan and then I stitched the separate shots together. The result is pretty epic. It reminds me of the classic science fiction movies of the 50’s and 60’s. Suddenly the show has a “Forbidden Planet” vibe. Other shots remind me of how director Robert Wise would use a camera technique to keep the foreground and background elements in focus.
