Movie Camera Shots

This week we started a new unit in English class. In this unit we are going to do a film study on an Indiana Jones film called “Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark”.

At class we discussed about the effects of different film shots. After the discussion we went up to the roof and took some camera shots that we talked about. I learned from that task many kind of shots and how you film them.

Here are 3 examples of different kinds of shots we took:

This is a bird’s eye view shot. This shot is usually used to show how big or empty things are.

This is an over the shoulder shot. These shots are often used in conversations or when people are walking.

This is an point of view shot. It shows what the person is seeing and it is usually used for dramatic scenes.

I am looking for watching the movie and analyzing it.
