Film Study Camera Shots
Low Angle Shot The camera looks up at the subject. This makes the subject seem important, powerful or larger than the viewer.
High Angle Shot The camera looks down on the subject. This makes it look smaller – gives the audience a sense of power or the subject a sense of hopelessness.
Eye Level Angle The audience sees things from the characters eye level. It makes them feel more comfortable.
Over the Shoulder Shot The camera shoots from behind a characters shoulder, and is used mostly during conversations. Allows the audience to feel more involved.
Establishing Shot (Extreme Long Shot) Contains a lot of landscape and gives important information about the setting and atmosphere at the beginning of a scene.
Long Shot Contains a lot of landscape or background and figures in the scene are recognisable as being human, male or female.
Medium Shot Person is seen from the waist up. If there are two people in a shot it is called a two shot, three people are a three shot.
Close Up Contains no background, focuses on the entire object or a persons head and shoulders. It may reveal human emotions or private information.
Extreme Close Up Focuses on one thing in great detail, it is even closer than a close up.
DIAGETIC SOUND A sound that other characters would be able to hear. For example: A song on a radio, for instance, as a character drives down the highway, would be a diegetic sound, as would someone coughing audibly during a scene.
NON-DIAGETIC SOUND Any voice, musical passage or sound effect that comes from outside the world of the movies; For example: like background music, for instance or a voice over. If the characters can't hear the sound, it's non- diegetic.
