Over the past couple days I have been working on a project called the 19 unique shots. In this project I practiced 19 of the most popular shots in famous movies. We are practicing for an upcoming project where we only get 6 shots to tell a whole story. For this upcoming project I will have to make every shot count so I searched for the most effective and my favorite shots. I found a few that I will definitely use in the future to share with you all.
Dark voyeur- This shot was fun to film because I liked the the look of the fence. I also felt stealthy when I was filming it.
Birds eye- I enjoyed this shot because I got to get to an elevated place and film. I liked looking down below and seeing how small everyone looked.
Following shot- I enjoyed this shot because of how challenging it was to keep up with my subject throughout the entire shot.
Maser establishing shot- Right when I went outside to film I noticed the track and felt it was perfect to help grab this shot. It was exciting to see a shot presented for me perfectly.
contract dolly- This shot made the shot look more exciting. At first I thought the shot was strange and there is no use for it but later I learned how interesting it made certain shots look. I will use this shot in the future if I want to show action.
Low Angle- I used this shot in my last WALLDO project and enjoyed the effect it had last time. The shot makes the subject look larger than they really are and helps the camera reach new angles. This shot is one of my favorites and I hope to use it in my Six Word Story project that is coming soon.
