ESTABLISHINGSHOT

Ways of framing what the camera sees, and how close it is to the subject.

Establishing shot- gives the audience an understanding of where a scene is about to take place.

Wide shot- seeing a character from head to toe, not too far away.

Mid shot- the character is seen from waist up.- allows the audience to see the character's body language and actions.

Two-shot- two characters appear in the same frame. Pay attention to where or what they are looking at.

Over the shoulder- often used in conversations- the frame shows one character's back while another character is facing the camera.

Close-up- the character is seen from shoulder to top of head.- is used to show the character's emotions.

Extreme close-up- the entire face is framed.- parts of the face may be framed out.

The specific location of the camera to take a shot. Related to "Point of view"

Low angle- the camera is below eye level to face up a subject.- can make the subject look strong, powerful, heroic or vilain.- can make the audience feel something unatural or unusual .- not a natural perspective.

High angle- the camera is high above the subject.- is the opposite of "low angle".- makes the subject appear smaller or weak.

Eye level- the camera is on the same level as the eyes of the subject.- a natural perspective.- is quite "neutral".

Above eye level- the camera is above the eye level of the subject.

How the camera moves

SELF-STUDY

Watch the 8 scenes corresponding to the beginning of Lumet's "12 Angry Men" and try to identify differentshot types, camera angles and movements.

Static- the camera doesn't move.

Panning- the camera goes from left to right or from right to left.

Tilting- the camera doesn't move physically but rotates up or down in a vertical plane.

Tracking- the camera follows the subject backward, forward or alongside.

Pedestal-the camera is lowered or elevated.

Dolly- the camera moves forward and zooms out on the subject or the camera moves backwards and zooms in.- also called "the vertigo effect".

Zooming (in or out)- the camera is static- the lens magnifies (zooms in) or minimizes (zooms out) the size of the subject.

Symmetry

OTHER CAMERA TECHNIQUES

Rule of 3

Fade in / out

Symmetry- occurs when objects or subjects are arranged symmetrically, as if they were mirrored.- creates a sense of organization and order.

Rule of 3- the shot has imaginary lines (3,6,9..) either vertical, horizontal, canted/ oblique.

Fade in / fade out- a picture appears (fades in) or disappears (fades out) progressively.- can be combined : a frame fades out while another fades in.
