    Symmetry in Cinematography 

    In film making, symmetry and one-point perspective are often used as an expressive art form. One-point perspective works by placing the camera directly opposite from the horizon and vanishing point. Prominent filmmakers such as Paul Thomas Anderson, Wes Anderson, and Stanley Kubrick make use of these techniques to frame the action in the movie.

    The three of them incorporate their personal film making styles in the use of these techniques. For example, Wes Anderson’s style is usually centered, as seen in his works – particularly in “The Grand Budapest Hotel.”

    On the other hand, Paul Thomas Anderson predominantly uses the golden ratio to create symmetry.

    DIBS! Vectors can be used to determine the optimal position to install solar panels.

    In the installation of solar panels, one must carefully consider the tilt of the roof and and the direction of the sun to produce the largest possible electrical power in the solar panels. The application of vector dot and cross products will allow us to predict the amount of electrical power the panels can produce.
