In English class, we are learning about Film Techniques such as shooting angles. Today, we brought Manga and comics and discussed about what scenes were what angles.
For example, the picture on the top is a medium close-up because it is not taken from the person’s waist, and the picture on the bottom is a low angle close-up because the camera is really close to the person’s face and it is also taken from underneath.
I think our choices of the scenes in the manga worked because we were trying to take two different pictures. These two pictures are both close ups but still different in closeness and angles.
I learned that the angles are very important in manga and comics because the scene will become more interesting, and you can also see what the character is feeling and their facial expressions.
I learned that different angles can change how the character looks from its audience from filming and creating our own angles. Compared to looking at “still” angles in comics, it has more movement in the angles, and you can also change the angles in one scene. I think the director creates the fim the way an author creates text because if the author writes a text as a far angle, the director shoots it as a far angle and if the author writes a text as a close up, the director can fim that scene as a close up.
