Media box workshop

  1. 1. camera techniques<br />
  2. 2. Camera Jargon<br />shot<br />A filmed image is called a<br />Cut<br />Changing between two shots is called a <br />Cutaway<br />A shot of something other than main action is called a <br />
  3. 3. There are three very important things you need to think about when you’re shooting:<br />Framing<br />Angle<br />Movement<br />
  4. 4. Framing<br />Divide the frame into nine squares<br />In interviews the eyes should be about a third from the top of the frame<br />You should leave some looking room for them talk into<br />If you put points of interest on the intersections the image will be more balanced <br />
  5. 5. Types of shots<br />When you’re framing a shot you need to think about how close or far away you want to be from the object or person.<br />
  6. 6. Extreme wide shot<br />Great way to establish a scene and give the video context<br />Normally used to show buildings or landscapes<br />Not much detail, but it gives the viewer lots of information<br />
  7. 7. Long shot<br />Show an object or person in life-size<br />Normally include some background<br />Main focus is the object or person<br />
  8. 8. Mid shot<br />Shows the object or person in a bit more detail<br />If it’s a person you’ll normally show the top half of their body<br />Used for scenes that involve talking<br />
  9. 9. Close up<br />Concentrate on specific details and faces<br />A very personal shot because you wouldn’t normally get that close to someone or something<br />Gives the viewer lots of information and detail<br />
  10. 10. Extreme close up<br />Even more intense close up<br />Captures things that the eye wouldn’t necessarily see<br />Could be an eye or a mouth<br />
  11. 11. Angles of shots<br />When you’re framing a shot different angles can convey different messages<br />
  12. 12. Birds eye<br />Shows a scene from directly overhead<br />Achieve by getting to a higher level and shooting down<br />Can make the action feel less significant and unintimidating<br />Can make the action feel less significant and unintimidating<br />
  13. 13. High angle<br />Less extreme version of the birds eye<br />Raise the camera above the action or person and shoot down<br />Can make the object or person seem smaller and less intimidating <br />Viewer feels in control of the scene<br />
  14. 14. Eye level<br />What you’d see if you were look at the person or object<br />A very neutral shot that makes the viewer feel like they are being spoken to<br />This is how most interviews are filmed<br />Achieve by positioning the camera directly in line with the action or person<br />
  15. 15. Low angle<br />Looks slightly up at the action or person<br />Helps to create authority in the scene <br />Make an interview or object look important<br />Achieve by putting the camera at a low level and shoot slightly upwards<br />
  16. 16. tilted<br />Shows a scene at a slanted angle <br />Used to give a package an artistic or quirky interpretation of a scene<br />Makes a scene more interesting and dramatic <br />Achieved by moving the camera slightly sideways<br />
  17. 17. Movement<br />A sequence can be developed by moving the camera with the action <br />Takes longer than still shots and gives the viewer a sense of real time<br />
  18. 18. Panning<br />Moving the camera horizontally along with the action or landscape<br />Keep the object or person in the centre of the frame<br />Could be following a person into a building or walking along<br />
  19. 19. Tilting<br />Moving the camera vertically along with the action or landscape<br />Could shoot from the sky to a building to get a sense of size<br />Another way to establish a scene – think about TV sitcoms<br />
  20. 20. zooming<br />Magnifies an images<br />Allows you to go from a wide shot to a close shot without any cuts<br />Try and keep the camera still<br />Experiment with different speeds to see which one looks best. Fast zooms are more intense and can create excitement. Slower zooms give more detail<br />
