Basic shot types & angles

  1. 1. Basic Shot Types
  2. 2. <ul><li>Shots come in a variety of distances, naming them is an inexact science, where does one shot distance end and another begin? Use your initiative! Here are some examples from “ Casino Royale ” </li></ul>
  3. 3. An extreme long shot this time - also an establishing shot - (it shows us where the action is set)
  4. 4. Note this shot is from the air - therefore it is also an aerial shot
  5. 5. Another ELS - this time from the ground, not an establishing shot as it is mid-sequence
  6. 6. A Long shot (LS) - note the full body is in view
  7. 7. A mid-shot (MS) roughly from the waist up
  8. 8. CLose-up (CU) used to show emotion/reaction
  9. 9. Extreme close up (ECU) to show detail of action
  10. 10. Over the shoulder shot - also in this case a Two shot
  11. 11. Point of View shot (POV) to help audience empathise with character
  12. 12. <ul><li>Shots are usually framed from eye level, occasionally for effect this is varied </li></ul>CAMERA ANGLES
  13. 13. High-angle shot - looking down on the action maybe to show vulnerability
  14. 14. Low angle, looking up, in this case to show the villain ’ s lack of awareness that Bond is behind him in the cab
  15. 15. A mild Dutch tilt (or canted angle) to show consternation or confusion in characters
