Cinematic Elements of Film Camera Movement- this is the movement of the camera to show emotion. long shot
ex. Camera angles-The camera angle marks the specific location at which a camera is placed to take a shot. A scene may be shot from several camera angles. Camera Placement - this includes the types of shots, which are: medium shot
ex. close up
ex. extreme close up
ex. and extreme long shot
ex. examples are: High angle shot- a shot taken from a high angle, this makes the object being taken look shorter and smaller
ex. low angle shot- a shot usually taken from under an object, this makes the object look more taller and powerful.
ex. eye level- a shot taken in eye level angle which makes the object being taken look near and real.
ex. and aerial level- this is a shot which is taken from a very high angle, objects are usually shot from an airplane or helicopter.
ex. pan
- this is the movement of the camera horizontally from a fixed base. This is usually used to follow moving objects such as, racing cars, speed boats, etc. ex. follow or tracking shot - this is a specific camera shot in which the subject being filmed is seemingly pursued by the camera. zoom - this is when the camera zooms in or out to clearly show a certain object. tilt - Tilting is a cinematographic technique in which the camera is stationary and rotates in a vertical plane. Tilting the camera results in a motion similar to someone nodding their head "yes". Editing - It is the process of assembling and splicing together the various shots that make a movie. In film and video editing, a cut is an abrupt, but usually trivial film transition from one sequence to another. cut fade in and fade out this is an effect created when transitioning to a new page. while one fades in, another fades out. Colour and lighting In cinematography, the use of light can influence the meaning of a shot. For example, film makers often portray villains that are heavily shadowed or veiled, using silhouette. Sound Sound effects can be used to add mood or atmosphere to a lm by creating a soundscape that accents or adds another layer of meaning to the images on the screen. Pitch, tempo, and volume may be altered to indicate how the lmmaker expects the audience to respond to a given noise. Diegetic sound: It is sound that the characters can hear as well as the audience, and usually implies a reaction from the character. Also called "literal sound" or "actual sound" Non-diegetic sound: It is sound which is represented as coming from a source outside the story space, ie. its source is neither visible on the screen, nor has been implied to be present in the action. Also called "non-literal sound" or "commentary sound" Track music - It is usually the background music which is played softly to add emotion to the characters in the movie. Voice over narration Voice-over (also known as off-camera or off-stage commentary) is a production technique where a voice which is not part of the narrative (non-diegetic) is used in a radio, television, film, theatre, or other presentation. Dialogue -a literary and theatrical form consisting of a written or spoken conversational exchange between two or more people. Ex. Thank You for watching By: John Michael Santos References:
