the mobile frame
The Mobile Frame
  • Possible for the frame to move with respect to framed material
  • Changes angle, level, height, or distance, DURING the shot
types of mobile framing
Types of Mobile Framing
  • Pan- rotates on vertical axis
  • Tilt- rotates on horizontal axis
  • Tracking/dolly- camera as a whole changes position, traveling in any direction along the ground
  • crane-camera moves above ground level  rises or descends
  • Handheld- not smooth, bumpy, jiggly “life like”
  • Steadicam- Body worn camera; smoothly follow actors stairs, walking, vehichles
  • ANY kind of camera movement can be considered
  • Why move the frame?!
