    • Camera Movement • Pan • Horizontal camera movement across a scene • Tilt • Vertical camera movement across a scene.

    • Storyboards • Storyboards are used by most film directors as a means to visualise the shots in a film sequence before they shoot them. • The Cohen Brothers use story boards extensively during their filming allowing them to carefully plan each of their shots.
