As technical Presentation Transcript

  • 1. — The FRAMING or the LENGTH of shot — The ANGLE of the shot — If there is any MOVEMENT involved
  • 2. THE CAMERA’S CLOSENESS TO THE OBJECT.
  • 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 “Bread and Butter” shot. It is used to move the story forward, showing two characters conversing and allowing the narrative to move onward.
  • 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 shot is used to show the emotions of a character, usually through their eyes. It could be used to show anger with a straight stare. It also makes the character more personal to the audience as people tend not to be that close to each other unless they are intimate.
  • 5. Definition CLOSE UP How its used This shot shows very little background and just concentrates on one specific thing closely. This shot is used to show the full range of emotions of a character. It also allows the audience to identify certain characters. For example a group of soldiers would only be identified by their faces due to their similar gear.
  • 6. Definition LONG SHOT How its used The camera is placed far away to capture a large area of view. The long shot is used to show the action occurring from a distance. This could be to emphasise the scale of the event or landscape that the characters in. it could also be used to show that a character is stranded, showing the empty landscape around them.
  • 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 This shot is used to make the audience feel like a certain character. It could be used to show that characters journey or adrenaline if they are in trouble. In some cases it can be used to hide a murderer but still show the actions that he/she commits.
  • 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 one character talking to another, it can be rotated by 180 degrees to show the other character talking. Without one characters shoulder being in shot, it would look odd that one character is talking to nothing.
  • 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 emotional response from a character after they have witnessed an event. An example of this is wide eyes and open mouth for someone being murdered.
  • 10. THE CAMERA’S HEIGHT FROM THE GROUND
  • 11. To show insignificance. To give a more detailed view. Normal eye level view, what we see. To give a more detailed view of less authority To show powerful, masculinity, authority
  • 12. BIRDS EYE VIEW Definition How its used This shows a scene from directly overhead, a very unnatural and strange angle. Birds eye views are used to show a whole situation from above. It can be used to show how dense a suburban area is or show how powerless someone is if they have been deserted somewhere.
  • 13. HIGH ANGLE Definition Not so extreme as a bird's eye view. The camera is elevated above the action using a crane to give a general overview. How its used High angle is used to show vulnerability or powerlessness. It can be used to show how insignificant a character is. It can be used to show the rank of a character.
  • 14. EYE LEVEL Definition How its used 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 ground. This shot is used to show a character on their level. It is used to show how people usually see the world. This moves the story onwards.
  • 15. LOW ANGLE Definition How its used the camera is positioned below the object or people being shot. Low angles are used to show a characters dominance or high authority.
  • 16. DUTCH TILT Definition How its used The camera is tilted so that on screen, the horizon appears to be tilted. This shot is used to show a character that is disorientated or show a rush, usually in action sequences.
  • 17. TILT UP Definition How its used the camera looks up at the objector people being shot. This shot is used to reveal a character or situation from a low angle that gets larger.
  • 18. TILT DOWN Definition How its used the camera looks down on the objector people being shot. This shot is used to reveal a character or situation from a high angle that gets larger.
  • 19. 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 is used to show a character walking along or to reveal a large scale scene that cant be emphasized in one shot.
  • 20. 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 follow a camera.. The camera is mounted on a track to make the movements smooth.
  • 21. 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. The zoom is used to slowly reveal more detail to an audience. It can be used to show the facial expressions of a character that is initially far away.
  • 22. QUICK 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. A quick zoom is when you move closer quickly. A quick zoom is used to show a realization of a character. The camera quickly zooms into a character to show that they have realized that something bad has happened.
  • 23. ARC SHOT Definition How its used the camera moves in a rough semi-circle around the subject. The arc shot can also show realization as it captures all the emotions of a character as the camera rotates around them. It can alkso be used to show the full scene or scenario around the character.
