    • What makes a good short film
    • How to get your message across – shot types, sound choice, cuts in film, camera techniques
    • Writing a script/storyboarding
    • Working as a team – who does what?
  • Establishing shot
    • An establishing shot contains a large amount of landscape. It is often used at the beginning of a scene or a film to establish general location (setting).
  • Long Shot
    • A long shot gives the audience more detail about a scene. A long shot may show the audience the building where the action will take place.
  • Medium Shot
    • A medium shot is taken from the knees/waist up.
    • From this shot, viewers can see the characters faces more clearly as well as their interaction with other characters. It can also be used during a conversation between two people.
  • Close-up
    • A close-up contains just one character’s face. This enables the audience to understand the actor’s emotions and also allows them to feel empathy for the character.
  • Extreme Close-up
    • An extreme close-up contains one part of a character’s face or other object. This technique is quite common in horror films and creates an intense mood.
