The Ipcress File: A Lesson in Cinematic Framing

We've always been told that framing within a frame is a nice technique to do in both photography and film-making. If you're on the lookout for examples, here's a 100 of them!

Framing in cinema, especially with classic movies, can be seen as a masterclass. There’s just so much you can learn just by watching each scene closely. In the 1965 film The Ipcress File starring a young Michael Caine, we are treated to a visual smorgasbord of framing techniques. From obvious shots from windows, to random foreground objects, director Sidney J. Furie really pushed the envelope in creating beautifully framed scenes, which this movie has a hundred of. That’s no exaggeration! Watch closely and you just might learn a thing or two!
