Transcript of "As technical"

  1. 1. — The FRAMING or the LENGTH of shot — The ANGLE of the shot — If there is any MOVEMENT involved
  2. 2. THE CAMERA’S CLOSENESS TO THE OBJECT.
  3. 3. Definition MEDIUM SHOT How its used Contains a figure from the knees/waist up and is normally used for dialogue scenes, or to show some detail of action. Background detail is minimal because location has been established earlier in the scene - the audience already know where they are. This is a medium shot. The main focus is the character and the background is secondary this is because we have already established where we are. This could also be used to highlight the strength and/or weaknesses of the main character.
  4. 4. EXTREME CLOSE UP Definition How its used This is a very close shot showing the detail of an object or the physical features of a person. This is used to focus on the detail of a particular shot, such as the marks on a mans face or a persons clothing. The is often used to make the audience feel uncomfortable as the character is all up in your face. Most extreme close ups focus on a persons eyes to show intensity or their focus on a particular thing.
  5. 5. Definition CLOSE UP How its used This shot shows very little background and just concentrates on one specific thing closely. A close up shot is used to show the emotions of a particular character so the audience can relate to their emotions. A close up shot would often be used to give a subject matter for example giving a close up of a badge to connote military work.
  6. 6. Definition LONG SHOT How its used The camera is placed far away to capture a large area of view. A long shot is used to show the whole picture of a scene. A long shot wont give you great detail about one particular thing but it will give you a good picture of everything within the scene.
  7. 7. POINT OF VIEW SHOT Definition A simple shot of what the character (or object) sees. We as the audience get a glimpse of what the character is looking at. How its used The point of this shot is to create the effect that your are in that persons situation so they can really relate to what they are seeing.
  8. 8. OVER THE SHOULDER SHOT Definition A shot with an actor’s shoulder in the foreground. How its used This shot is used to show to relationship between both characters. As well as the depth of the conversation in which they are having.
  9. 9. Definition REACTION SHOT A shot showing one or more characters reacting to an action or statement. How its used This shot is used to show the great detail in a characters emotions. The purpose of this is to provoke a reaction as if a character is viewed screaming it will build tension in the scene.
  10. 10. THE CAMERA’S HEIGHT FROM THE GROUND
  11. 11. BIRDS EYE VIEW Definition How its used This shows a scene from directly overhead, a very unnatural and strange angle. This is used to show everything on the ground such as the amount of people there. This is often used to make everything below look insignificant.
  12. 12. HIGH ANGLE Definition Not so extreme as a bird's eye view. The camera is elevated above the action using a crane to give How its used This is used to show the surroundings of the characters and to go into particular detail such as blood on the floor or dead bodies.
  13. 13. EYE LEVEL Definition the camera is positioned as though it is a human actually observing a scene, so that eg actors' heads are on a level with the focus. The camera will be placed approximately five to six feet from the How its used
  14. 14. LOW ANGLE Definition the camera is positioned below the object or people being shot. How its used
  15. 15. DUTCH TILT Definition The camera is tilted so that on screen, the horizon appears to be tilted. How its used
  16. 16. TILT UP Definition How its used the camera looks up at the objector people being shot. The effect of this shot is to show someone or something from an upward angle to make it look more superior and powerful, towering above the viewer.
  17. 17. TILT DOWN Definition How its used the camera looks down on the objector people being shot. This is used to make the character focused on screen seem to be inferior and venerable as he is being viewed downwards, he is the smaller figure.
  18. 18. PAN Definition How its used The camera moves across the scene FROM SIDE TO SIDE (move your head from left to right – this is panning) This provided the viewer with the information on a setting or a scene, following a shot along. It should be smooth not jerking along providing details on a scene.
  19. 19. TRACKING Definition How its used A tracking shot and a dolly shot have the same effect. A tracking shot moves on tracks and a dolly shot is mounted on a trolley. This shot is used to show a characters journey as they are moving along. This is used to create a scene in fast motion to build tension. E.g. Skyfall and the motorbike scene.
  20. 20. ZOOM Definition How its used Zooming means altering the focal length of the lens to give the illusion of moving closer to or further away from the action. Moviemakers zoom in on a object to focus on the detail of it. It is also used to create a particular effect.
  21. 21. QUICK ZOOM Definition Zooming means altering the focal length of the lens to give the illusion of moving closer to or further away from the action. A quick zoom is when you move closer quickly. How its used
  22. 22. ARC SHOT Definition How its used the camera moves in a rough semi-circle around the subject. Virtually circles a subject to keep the audience attention on the main characters as well as showing more detail.
