Transcript of Camera Movement in Citizen Kane

Camera Movement in Citizen Kane
Orson Welles uses a crane to pull up and reveal the location and then pushes in to show the characters in context to the location, while tilting down transitioning through a window to make it seem like one progressive shot through solid objects.
Camera Movement
Another Example
The Thatcher library scene is another example of crane movement and what content it reveals. The shot starts on the statues face and tilts down to reveal who it is and then pulls out to see where we are and who is in the scene.
These shots help the audience know where the scene is, who is in the scene and the why the scene relevant to the story. Without numerous cuts the director can show all these important things within a short amount of time while still being able to show all the necessary information needed.
Clip starts at 00:14:22
Overall you can see camera movement is very important in film, being able to show numerous actions in one continuous moving shot, making the film more watchable and interesting. Allowing the camera to tell the story and take you to where the action is. The camera movement reveals things in the film in a stylistic and subtle manner without the movie forcing it on you with extreme cuts.
