Structure and Language of Film

Vocabulary: shot, sequence, montage, types of shots, types of edits, types of camera movements


Structure of a film

  • Shot – a simple run of the camera

  • Sequence– a group of shots depicting one action, or which seems to belong with or depend upon each other

  • Scene- A group of sequences or a group of shots which depict an event or occur in one place

  • Montage-a series of shots or sequences that are related by theme and not necessarily by time or place


Shot

  • a simple run of the camera

  • The basic unit in film

  • Shot is to film as word is to text


Types of shotslong shot or wide shotmedium shotclose upextreme close up2 shotover the shoulder shot


Two shot


Wide shot (w.s.)

Description:

Shows whole body or space.Purposes: Establish scene or setting, allow room for action.


Medium Shot (m.s.)

Description: Shows subject from waist up. Purposes: Allows connection with subject while providing room for gestures. Most frequently used shot.

Description: Shows subject from waist up. Purposes: Allows connection with subject while providing room for gestures. Most frequently used shot.


Close up (c.u.)

Description: Shows enlarged view of part of subject.Purposes: Draws attention to details and adds emotion.


CLOSE UP OF A FACE


CLOSE UP (C.U.)


Extreme close up


Medium shot (M.S.) of a person


Another medium shot (M.S.)


Long shot (L.S.) -to show action and/or perspective


Aka “the establishing shot”


Sequence- a group of shots depicting one action


Scene- a series of shots in one setting or depicting an event


Montage- series of shots connected by theme not necessarily by time and space


Cut-the ending of a shot. If the cut is a jerky movement, which seems inconsistent with the next shot it’s called a jump cut


Fade in or out-the image appears or disappears gradually. Often used as a division between scenesDissolve-one image fades in while another fades out so that for a few seconds the two are super imposed


An example of a dissolve edit


Camera Movements

  • Pan-movement from side to side from a stationary position

  • Tilt- movement up or down from a stationary position

  • Tracking-camera itself moves to follow a moving object

  • Zoom-lens shortens or lengthens to make object closer or further

  • Dolly-moving camera in and out to make make subject appear larger or smaller in the frame


Pan

Description: Shows what's to the left or right of the screen.

Purposes: Reveal setting, sweep across subject wider than screen, show relationship between two subjects.


Tilt

Description: Shows what's above or below the screen. Purposes: Reveal parts of vertical subject, useful for showing tall objects, show relationship between parts of a subject, can add suspense or surprise.

Camera Angles

Normal camera angle is at the same level

as the subject, but there could be cinematic reasons to move the camera up or down.


High Angle—makes subject look small and vulnerable


Low angle shot will tend to make subject look more powerful


There are other reasons of course for high and low angle shots


Bird’s eye angle


Dutch Angle—used to communicate psychological imbalance among other things, now becoming overused perhaps. It’s actually a framing technique more than a camera angle


Film noir—the femme fatale


Film Noir—the cool loner


Dark subject matter, shadowy photography, the white man’s blues


SOUNDDiegetic vs. Non Diegetic

Diegetic = sound from the world of the film,

that the characters can hear.

Non Diegetic = sound, usually music and

narration, that only the audience

can hear


Notes: it is possible for imagery to be non diegetic as wellsome directors as a matter of style have blurred the lines in diegeticism
