Camera shots, angles, movement.

  2. 2. What is a shot?  A shot is a series of frames, that runs for an uninterrupted period of time.  Film shots are an essential aspect of a movie where angles, transitions and cuts are used to further express emotion, ideas and movement.  In production, a shot is the moment that the camera starts rolling until the moment it stops.  In film editing, a shot is the continuous footage or sequence between two edits or cuts.
  3. 3. Camera Shot Categories  Extreme Long shot  Long shot  Wide Shot  Establishing shot  Mid / Medium Shot  Medium Close-up  Close up shot  Extreme Close Up  Birds eye view shot  Over the shoulder shot  Point of view shot  Two Shot
  4. 4. Extreme Long Shot  A wider frame value in which subjects in the frame are small; a building, cityscape.
  5. 5. Long Shot  A shot which displays a full figure from top to tip showing the entire object or human figure.
  6. 6. Wide Shot  Long shot as a "wide shot" because it often requires the use of a wide-angle lens.
  7. 7. Establishing Shot  When a long shot is used to set up a location and its participants in film and video, it is called a establishing shot.
  8. 8. Mid / Medium Shot  A shot displaying the human figure / object in half.
  9. 9. Medium Close-up  A shot which displays the figure in a little close-up form but the head and shoulders are very much in the frame.
  10. 10. Close-up shot  It is a type of shot, which tightly frames a person or an object. Close-ups display the most detail, but they do not include the broader scene.
  11. 11. Extreme Close Up  The shot is so tight that only a detail of the subject, such as someone's eyes, can be seen
  12. 12. Birds eye shot  A bird's-eye view is an elevated view of an object from above, with a perspective as though the observer were a bird.
  13. 13. Over the shoulder shot  An over the shoulder shot (also over shoulder, OS, OTS, or third-person shot) is a shot of someone or something taken from the perspective or camera angle from the shoulder of another person.
  14. 14. Point of view shot  A point of view shot (also known as POV shot or a subjective camera) shows what a character (the subject) is looking at (represented through the camera).
  15. 15. Two-Shot  A Two shot is a type of shot employed in the film industry in which the frame encompasses a view of two people (the subjects).
  16. 16. Guessing game! Behold!
  17. 17. Camera Angle  The camera angle marks the specific location at which a camera is placed to take a shot.  A scene may be shot from several camera angles simultaneously
  18. 18. Camera Angle Categories  High Angle shot  Low Angle shot  Eye-level camera angle
  19. 19. High Angle shot  A high angle shot is usually when the camera angle is located above the eyeline.  Connotes inferiority.
  20. 20. Low Angle shot  A low-angle shot, is a shot from a camera positioned low on the vertical axis, anywhere below the eyeline, looking up.  Connotes superiority.
  21. 21. Eye-level camera angle  It is a shot when the camera is positioned on the same level as that of the character in the film.
  22. 22. Camera Movement Categories  Panning  Tilt  Zoom  Tracking / Dolly
  23. 23. Panning  Panning refers to the rotation in a horizontal plane of a camera.
  24. 24. Tilt  Technique in which the camera is stationary and rotates in a vertical plane
  25. 25. Zoom  A camera movement requiring a zoom lens ("zoom in/out")
  26. 26. Tracking / Dolly  The camera is mounted to the dolly and the camera assistant usually ride on the dolly to operate the camera.  For smooth movement.
  27. 27. Pop quiz  What was the vertical movement of the camera called?  …horizontal?
