Eye Level Shots
Bird's Eye View Shots
Oblique/Canted Angle Shots
All the above are the camera movements which are necessary to be known for a script writer or a wanna be directors. when i have started this blog an year back i am only interested in scriptwriting and story construction for a film. But now, my interest have expanded in such a way that i am feeling to know each and everything related to film making. In this process, i have come across so many new topics related to camera,scriptwriting, rules to follow while u frame a scene, shot division etc., but the thing is that if u search the net u will get all the topics related to scripting but all the other things like shot division, cinematography related topics are very less when compared. So, i am planning to present all the topics which i have come across but it might take time because of my personal issues.. please do follow the blog it will surely help u to do better ur script and film making abilities.
Okay, now i shall be teaching u each and every shot i have mentioned above:
Pan Shots: This kind of shot will be useful when u want to show distance between two objects or when u want to follow the subject.If u want to be a good panner just get a Tripod and practice the pan shot many times at different speeds. Tripod helps u in smooth movement of camera camera.
Camera Movement: The camera movement will be Horizontal from left to right or vise versa. Don ever get confused with a Pan and a Tilt.
Tilt Shots: Tilt shot will be just like a pan shot like following the object or subject and the added advantage of a tilt is that u can able to show the height of an object to.
Camera Movement: A pan shot need a horizontal movement of the camera where as a tilt need to be vertical that is the only difference.
Pedestal Shot: It will be just similar to a Tilt but not exactly a Tilt shot. Just moving the camera up and down to get the perfect height. For example if u want to show a child then u will adjust the height of yoyr camera to the same as the child. Are if u want to show a tall guy who is 6'6 height then u will adjust the height to his level. This kind of shot is known as pedestal shot.
I will be posting remaining shot details in my next post. Keep going. And don forget to comment that will help me to improve and to write better. Any suggestions are advices are welcomed. please write to me on my contact form. i will get back to u.
