Camera in movement

Because objects are in the distance, we have a weak sense of movement of the actor. Close objects increases the impression of movement. The impression of movement is stronger if the objects are in front of the actor.

Positions of actors without the establishing shot

The first actor is on the left side of the vehicle. The second actor is on the right side of the vehicle. The third actor is in the middle of the vehicle. We can see where are the actor without the establishing shot.

Detecting the position of actors

The first actor is on the right side and looking to the left. Another character is on the left side looking to the right. Establishing shot shows us that the actors turn their backs. If we are fimming in this way the viewer immediately realizes that the actors turn their backs. In this way we show and other actor.

Unreveal the space

Viewers will be interesting if the space gradually unravel. If we show the whole space that won't be so interesting.

Orentation point

This is the first actor, actors in the background on the left are orientation point. This is the second actor, actors in the background on the right are orientation point. We see where the characters are without establishing shoot.

Actors behind one to another

We see two actors opposite each other. We now know that one actress is standing a front of the actor and one behinf the actor.

Working with lights

All the lights are off. Nowthe main light is turned on. Now the side-light is turned on on the other side. Now two lights are turn on, main and secondary. Now we are adding the backlight. The atmosphere can be changed by changing the color in the film. This is for example horror atmosphere.

Complicated handling with camera

This is a complicated handling of the camera. We see the three actors in the conversation. Although we have no establishing shot girl is used for orientation in space in this dialogue. Not  using the girl as an orientation  we would be lost.

Camera Angles

If  actor is filmed in eye level, feeling is neutral. If you put the camera down actor will look stronger and superior. If you raise the camera actor will look weak and inferior. If you put the camera very down we  get a view from a frog's perspective and that gives us an even stronger feelings. If excessively raise the camera get a view from bird's perspective and that gives us an even stronger feelings.

Rule of thirds

The actor turned their backs occupies one third of the screen and the actor facing occupies two thirds of the screen. When the actor filming close-up takes two thirds of the screen and a blank screen takes one third. Placing an actor in the middle of the screen is good to be avoid.

The area around the actor

It is not good to leave too much space above an actor. Little or no space above the actor suggest sensed trouble and difficulty. Moderate space above the actor achieve moderate or relaxed atmosphere.

Actor in the middle

The empty space in front of the actor says that the actor is open to communication. The same applies to the other actor. The empty space on both sides from third actor shows us that the character is open for communication with other characters.

Dialogue No.2

This is the beginning of a dialogue. In the following dialogue camera is located on the good side. Now the camera is on the wrong side. The camera may change the shooting angle if the viewer sees this change. Also doing it with a different camera.

Dialogue No.1

This is the establishing shot, with this shot viewers can see where the action takes place. The actor filmed a short distance is more sympathetic. The actor filmed from a distance is less sympathetic.
Now he is the actor less likable because he is filmed from a distance, while the other actor more likable because he is shoot from short distance.

Camera shots

During filming actor is filmed from different angles, so we must move the camera. A small shift of the camera is not good because it does't show a major change in the viewers eyes. The larger shift is acceptable because it gives a different view of the actor
