Office Hours screenframe size

With Office Hours we are going to use a narrow frame size, much narrower (ie; letterbox stylee) than that of To Shoot A Rurf, Heli-Ball or even The Darkside. In fact we were thinking of using a narrow frame for Rurf but it proved awkward for shot composition and layout purposes.
If you're confused then think of it like this: normal PAL frame is 720X576 pixels; Office Hours frame might be closer to 720X288 pixels.
The exact frame size hasn't been locked down but it will add to the cinematic qualities of Office Hours. We feel the tighter screen size focuses attention better rather than having the viewers eyes wandering all over the shop! And it just looks damn cool in tests we've done.
