  • 1. FRAMING WITHIN A FILM Film Studies
  • 2. THE ART OF COMPOSITION• Determines what the viewer can and can’t see.• A typical sequence would start with a long shot to orient the audience, and continue with medium shots to reveal the action.• In between the mid shots, close-ups can be used to vary the emotional impact, to reveal reactions and to magnify small details.• Each shot is created and selected for a specific purpose, as well as to draw the eye to a clear center of interest.

  • 12. CAMERA MOVEMENT • Camera movement adds interest and excitement to shots.• Camera movements should be motivated, which is to say they should be done for a specific reason, such as to reveal information or to follow the action. • There are four main types of camera movements: Pans, Tilts, Dollies and Trucks.
  • 13. PANNING AND TILTINGPanning – when the camera moves from left to right or vise versa, with the camera staying in one place. Example of one of the first panning shots - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ktVIOxGgla8&feature=related Tilting – when the camera moves up and down from a single location. View this brief example of a camera tilt - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0jYXX48Oz7s Heise, William, & White, James. (Creator). Punkologus (Poster) (2011, March 13).

Camera Movement - Tilt [Video] Retrieved from http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0jYXX48Oz7s
  • 14. DOLLY AND TRUCKINGDolly Shot – When you push the whole camera forward or backwards in a straight line Trucking - side to side movement of a camera. The distance usually remains constant between camera and subject. You can see the camera operator seated on the dolly in the behind-the-scenes video of Grey’s Anatomy. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DXzALj_FOho&t=3m6sABC Studios. (Creator).
