BE CREATIVE. BE INNOVATIVE. THINK DIFFERENT.
CAMERA-WORK TO THINK ABOUT:
1. How to decide when/how camera moves? To serve what purpose will you use different types of camera movement in story?
*Consider In-Class Viewing & Discussion of ‘Heavenly Creatures’ and ‘127 Hours’ along with other moments in films you may know that have memorable camera movement.
– Think about how the camera moves in these scenes above and why its moving.
– Brainstorm still and moving objects to affix a camera onto to get unique POV’s.
– Plan out where shot will end and choreograph actors and mis-en-scene around getting there from the start and think what will come into and out of the frame.
2. How/When will you shoot multiple perspectives and unique POV shots to capture action and multi-perspectives?
*Consider Student Sample Films and Breaking Bad POV clips. Analyze and figure out how all the different locations the camera was placed or affixed to and what type of actions and choreography with actors and action each shot was able to capture. Think about how/what fills up or empties the frame.
