Shot types

  1. 1. Shot Types Used <ul><li>How I have included different shot types within my animation to portray different scenes </li></ul>
  2. 2. Establishing Shot <ul><li>I have included an establishing shot both in the dark and when it is light so that the viewer can see the location of where the story is set. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Close Up <ul><li>I have used a close up of the hand of the owner opening the door of the car to reveal a pet carrier. This shot is a medium shot which has been ‘framed’ so that the carrier is still half hidden. The style of these shots help keep the suspense and excitement of the viewer who is waiting to find out what is in the carrier and what the story is about. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Close Up <ul><li>One of the most important ways of using a close up is to show a characters emotions. This is really useful in expressing the characters feelings to the viewers. I have included a number of close ups of the cat and some of the dog to show how they are feeling at that time in the narrative. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Medium Shot <ul><li>I have also used some medium shots to show the characters actions. The first image shows a medium shot of the cat stretching after just waking up, and the second of the cat creeping around the doorway. Both these shots I believe work well in keeping some of the character covered and only focusing on the emotions of the character. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Long Shot <ul><li>I have used a number of long shots within my animation to show the both the characters and their surroundings in a way which helps support the narrative. The longs shots on this page show that the characters are playing in the kitchen which makes the viewer think of what could happen next. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Two Shot <ul><li>I think the first two shot shown is really effective in showing the hierarchy of the pets. The cat has always been the ‘rule of the roost’ and therefore gets the best place sat on the chair. Within the scene the dog is also seen to look up at the cat as a role model/ shows his submission. Again with the second screen, the cat is shown to be higher up than the dog. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Zoom <ul><li>I have used a zoom from an establishing shot into the living room of the house to take the viewer into the home where the story starts to take place. This is an effective way of moving from one scene to another. </li></ul>
