  • Shooting Basics 5 Basic Shots
    • - Wide
    • Medium
    • Tight
    • Action
    • Reaction
  • Wide Shot – “Establishing” shot Wide shots are usually of a person’s full body, or of a landscape, or of a building. It is helpful to grab a wide shot of each location where you shoot.
  • Medium Shot A medium shot usually contains a person’s head and part of the torso. The bottom of the frame can be anywhere from just above the waist to the shoulders. This is the standard framing for an interview.
  • Tight Shot A close-up is framed tightly on a person’s face. Usually, the face will mostly fill the screen, and some of it may not even be visible (top or bottom of the head, etc.)
  • Action & Reaction For every action, there is a reaction. These shots can come in various forms, but are critical to the story.
  • Wide Medium Tight Sequence of shots
  • What shot is it? 1 2 3 4

  • Creating Meaningful Video
    • When using a tripod, hold your shots and take your hands off the camera.
    • - No pans or zooms, it’s not natural for your eyes or how you look at things.
    • - Find the characters and let them help you tell the story.
  • Let’s have some fun!
