One of the first things students are taught in film school is the purpose of the basic types of camera shots. This common language is essential for writers, directors, camera operators, and cinematographers to effectively communicate visual elements of a shot, particularly the size of a subject—often a person—within the frame.
This workshop will cover the essential shot types that you should get to know and when/how these shot types are used.
- Using a one scene script, the workshop participants will work together to execute a shot list and discuss why you would choose certain shot options for each script.
This course will be hands-on! We will be reviewing camera basics. Bring your camera if you have one!
