  3. 3. Establishing Shot Rule of thirds Shallow Depth Of Field Establishing shot taken from James Bond. This shot sets the location clearly to the audience. This is not something I am planning to use in my horror trailer at the moment as my previous research shows a limited amount of these shots in horror trailers. The Rule of thirds has made me aware of the best way to position my characters in front of the camera. This rule focuses on what is the key part of the shot based on the positioning. As seen in the picture below the character is also left with “looking room” to make the shot more interesting and create questions for the audience. Shallow depth of field is a regularly used effect used with the camera in order to direct a viewers attention to a specific point or create suspense with the scene of unknown. The use of shallow depth of field is to shorten the amount focus within the shot.
