On April 30th, we had to go to the roof and take videos of different angles and types of shots using our cameras or phone. The reason we did this was because we are learning about movies, and we started off with comics. We had to consider these types of shots: Long shots, medium shots, close-up, extreme close-ups, high angle shots, and low angle shots. We had to pair up with another person (Chosen by our english teacher Ms. Cox) and worked on the roof. I was paired up with Yudai. Here are the two videos we took as a group. Movie 2 is a close-up low angle shot. The other one is a medium low angle shot.
Fortunately, the Yudai was quite good at drama and action. So we got a few good-looking shots for our group. We could not manage the time very well and as a result, we only have a little amount of work completed. During this exercise, I learned about different types of shots, and how they are used to make someone’s attitude different. For instance if you take a low angle shot, it looks as though the person who is in the picture is looking stronger. However if you take a high angle shot, it looks as though you are stronger than someone else. Thank you for reading, and stay tuned for more.
