Mr. A. McCarthy
Composition is the visual creation of the film frame for the audience. Cinema is made up of two types of composition:
1. Composition resulting from the position and placement of things in the frame.
2. Composition resulting from movement(making it different from still photography)
These are the tools that filmmakers use to control your visual responses to their messages. This can be more specifically done through:
Parts of the film
Types of Shots
Other visual components and techniques
a) High – Camera looks down on the subject
b) Low – Camera looks up on the subject
c) Flat – Camera is on the same plane as the subject
2. Camera Distance
a) Long Shot (LS) – shows subject at a distance
b) Close Shot (CS) or Close-Up (CU) – shot taken close to the
subject to reveal detail
c) Medium Shot (MS) – a shot that falls in between LS and CS
d) Extreme Close up (ECU) – A shot that highlights only one object.
