  2. 2. Medium Shot: A shot framing the human figure from the chest up.Effect: Allows the audience to see the objects in he background and enhances thatthe man can’t see the people that just walked into the room as it is a shot of his back.
  3. 3. Three shot, medium shot, low angle: Three subjects in frame framing the human figure fromthe waist up. The camera is pointing slightly up.Effect: The fact that you can see that two of the characters are higher up than the man thatis sitting downs shows that they have more power and are the more dominant characters.By having all three characters in the frame you an easily view this.
  4. 4. Medium Shot & High Angle: A shot framing the human figure from the chest up.

It’s alsoa reaction shot as you can see how the man feels about what was just said.
  7. 7. Three shot, medium shot: Three subjects in frame framing the human figure from the waistup.Effect: The audience cane see two characters facial expressions and the high differenceagain shows the vulnerability of the man with the gun pointed at him.
  8. 8. Medium Shot: A shot framing the human figure from the chest up.Effect: He’s on his own in this shot which shows he has no one to help him. You canalso see more of the objects in the background. The audience can tell that the othertwo men are behind him which makes him even more vulnerable because theaudience and the man cant see him.
  9. 9. Medium Shot: A shot framing the human figure from the chest shot.Effect: The audience can see the mans face which allows them to see his emotions but alsowhat is going on behind him. The audience can see what the man can’t enhancing hisvulnerability.

  11. 11. Medium shot: A shot framing the human figure from the chest.Effect: The audience can see the mans facial expressions as he is in the foreground but canalso see the man in the background collecting tools giving an idea of what might happennext.
  12. 12. 180 Degree RuleThe 180 rule is an important concept in video and film ̊production. It refers to an imaginary line which cutsthrough the middle of the scene from side to side withrespect to the camera. Crossing the line changes theviewers perspective in such a way that it may causedisorientation and confusion. For this reason crossingthis line is usually avoided.In Hostel you can see that the above rule is usedbecause all the camera shots are taken from the sameside of the imaginary line.
  13. 13. Match on actionThe cut between two shots showing that no time has past between them. For examplein the two shots below you can see the gun in the first shot and also the second shot.They show the same point in time from showing that no time has past in between theshots.It’s important as it allows continuity to be shown.
