Research on Subtitle Forms in Stereoscopic Films

Wu Tao, Cui Yunpeng
In film and television works, subtitles are generally understood as elements independent of pictures. However, with the emergence of a large number of stereoscopic films, subtitles become the space elements of “real existence” in the space of stereoscopic pictures. The form, spatial position and content design of subtitles and other attributes which were relatively independent of the picture in the past are brought back into the scope of the picture. Inappropriately designed subtitles can destroy the overall aesthetic feeling of the picture, or even increase the discomfort of watching the film, thus breaking the carefully constructed experience of the works. But at present, the industry and academic circles focus on the content of subtitles; there is a lack of in-depth discussion on the form of subtitles and their impact on the film-watching experience. It is urgent to rethink the design of subtitles from the perspective of the overall design of stereoscopic pictures.
