Week 06: Mobile Framing and the Long Take
- Mobile framing; in camera angle, height, distance,
Consequence is that the filmmaker manipulates the audience to the mise
- editing can shift space
- Framing changes what and how you see something
- Functions to render off and on screen space
-camera movement is a constant change in off screen framing
types of camera movements
tilt – upwards or downwards
pan – left to right
swish pan – blurs the image because it moves so quickly
tracking (dolly or trucking) shot – travel in any direction along
the ground, most controlled type of camera movement.
crane – forwards backwards side to side ect.
hand-held shot – gives a rough, jerky, bumpy, jiggly, image
often used to heighten realism.
• Steadicam: harness connected to cameraman shots
with great smoothness despite being a handheld shot.
Can also be added with a crane shot.
Pay attention to spacial relationships, the terrain and
how that would effect the type of camera shooting
they would use.
