Re: What aspect ratio should I shoot with, when mixing historical footage?

I have a DP but he is just covering the cinematography for the interviews. He is not covering the decisions for if the aspect ratio on the historical footage should be changed. I told him about reframing the footage to fit the interview aspect ratios we choose, and he said that should be fine.

But I thought I would get opinions on here. Well what are some documentaries then to learn from where they switch aspect ratios constantly, while cutting back and forth between archival footage and interviews?

As for destroying someone else's work, I thought I would just be showing it in a different context that goes with my movie, rather than look at it as destroying it, but if I should keep it the same, do you think the constant changing of aspect ratios could come off as distracting?
