Shot Size Shots are defined by the size of the subject within the film frame. A LOT can happen in one shot. The size of a subject can vary within a single shot.

Extreme Close Up Part of the subject takes up all of the entire screen
Medium Close Up Mid-point between Medium shot and Close up
Extreme Long Shot Subject is fully seen in the distance of the shot
Camera Angles Camera is usually at eye level, but can vary for particular effect Often Objective POV (though can be Subj. or Indirect-Subj.) Offers “normal” view of the world
High Angle High angle - taken from above subject The Shining (1980) What effect does this image have on the audience?
Low Angle Low angle - taken from below subject Equilibrium (2002) What effect does this image have on the audience?
Add the word “EXTREME”… EXTREME HIGH ANGLE: Pink Floyd’s The Wall (1982)
