Directing Camera Movement — Filmmaking Techniques for Directors: Ep4

How do the best directors use movement of the camera to get emotion from the audience? Download your FREE camera movement worksheet to get started:

In episode 4 of our Filmmaking Techniques series, we’ll explore the director’s journey and how they collaborate with a cinematographer to create effective scenes that get emotion, excitement, and chills from the viewer.

It’s important to remember we are following master directors, so whether you want to learn the basics or need to brush up on your already adequate skills, this series is for you.

We’ll go over the best shots and most effective shooting techniques so you can get started on your first or fortieth feature. These are the best movie shots ever in our opinion.

You’ll see work from Michael Bay, Steven Spielberg, Paul Greengrass, and others.

Chances are some of your favorite shots in movie history involve movement of the camera. But not everything is a Paul Thomas Anderson oner or a Wes Anderson tracking shot. Sometimes movement is more subtle.

The ins and outs of cinematography and directing are nuanced. We have an entire series of these videos, so subscribe to the StudioBinder channel to find more free resources for you to use when crafting your next project.

Learning from The Best

Learning to tell a story with visuals sometimes is as easy as watching. It helps to have someone who knows things watch with you sometimes. Herte, we have that in a clip from the Youtube channel Every Frame a Painting.

Subscribe to the channel to keep learning the art of storytelling with film.

How do you film a conversation? Most likely, you’re going to block the actors, set up the camera, and do shot/reverse shot. But where do you put the camera? What lens do you use? And how do you cut back and forth? Today, I consider the Coen brothers — Joel & Ethan — and see how these choices lend a particular feel to their version of shot/reverse shot.
