1 AS Media: Camera shots, movement and key terminology We are learning to: be able to identify a range of camera shots, angles and movements using terminology.

2 Can you define these terms? Collocation Juxtaposition Representation Motif Expectation Halo effect Subjectivity Accessed voices Androcentrism Self-fulfilling prophesy Extension 1: can you think of any examples of where these might be used in the media? Extension 2 : how do you think we might use these to analyse a media text?

3 Can you define these terms? Collocation – pairs that are usually associate or put together (e.g. Mum and dad, Man and wife, Batman and Robin) Juxtaposition – positioning next to each other Representation – the subjective and intentional reconstruction of reality Motif – a recurring theme or idea in a work Expectation – how we believe or expect people to behave and act Halo effect – in an initial encounter we pick out 1 or 2 general characteristics of a person and let that form our general opinion/impression of them; e.g. a person who is well qualified and neatly dressed will perform well in their job Subjectivity – individual perspective, opinion, impression, interpretation etc Accessed voices – the range of voices and institutions that have access to channels of mass communication leading to a privilege of these voices in society. The view of the powerful and the rich becomes the status quo. Androcentrism – placing more importance in views, politics, society, media etc on men than on women. Self-fulfilling prophesy – when expectations of peoples’ behaviour helps to encourage that behaviour. E.g. labelling people as deviant may contribute to the development of deviant behaviour.

4 Camerawork/Cinematography How you present is up to you but remember the following: 1.Give examples 2.Use correct terminology 3.Explain the effect where you can 4. this to me when you’re done! The 4 areas we are looking at are: Shots Angles Framing Movement You might use: PowerPoint, pictures, write a song/rap, produce a role play. You have 30 minutes. GO!

5 Camerawork/Cinematography Cinematography is concerned with how the things in front of the camera are made to look. What angle is chosen and why? Does that angle create/add to the representation? How is the camera moving? For what end? Your job is to work in pairs research and explain a different aspect of camerawork. How you present this to the class is up to you. What is cinematography or camerawork?

6 Over to you! Things to consider What do you know now that you didn’t before? To what extent does camerawork add to the enjoyment of a film? How and why? To what extent do you think the cameraman/camerawork is responsible for creating representations?

7 Over to you! You’re the teacher

8 You’re the teacher: Camera Shots Establishing shot/ Extreme Long shot Long Shot Mid shot Two shot Close up Extreme close up Over shoulder shot Wide shot Master shot In your pair/small group, you need to come up with a way that explains the aspects of camerawork you have been given. AO1 - demonstrate knowledge of media form using the correct terminology A02 – explaining the effects, showing how meaning is created

9 You’re the teacher: Framing Viewpoint Point of view Depth of field Selective focus Focus pulls Defocus Rule of thirds In your pair/small group, you need to come up with a way that explains the aspects of camerawork you have been given. AO1 - demonstrate knowledge of media form using the correct terminology A02 – explaining the effects, showing how meaning is created

10 You’re the teacher: angles Bird’s eye High angle Eye level Low angle Worm’s eye Reverse angle Dutch angle (sometimes called oblique/canted) Tilted angle Wide angle In your pair/small group, you need to come up with a way that explains the aspects of camerawork you have been given. AO1 - demonstrate knowledge of media form using the correct terminology A02 – explaining the effects, showing how meaning is created

11 You’re the teacher: movements Zoom Reverse zoom Following pan Surveying pan Tilt Crab Tracking (dollying) Hand-held camera Process shot Crane Steadicam In your pair/small group, you need to come up with a way that explains the aspects of camerawork you have been given. AO1 - demonstrate knowledge of media form using the correct terminology A02 – explaining the effects, showing how meaning is created
