A Story in 5 Shots_Sieun Park

  1. The shots in the 5-shot sequence are:
    1.  Closeup of the hands
    2. Closeup of the face
    3. Wide shot
    4. Over the shoulder
    5. Unusual/alternative (Overhead shot)
  2.  Describe the shot sizes in the first 4 shots
    1.  Closeup of the hands is a shot that focuses the hand. An extreme close-up of the hands provides a limited view of the surroundings and only reveals a small portion of the hands. The idea of this shot is to not see the entire subject, hands, but rather focus on a specific portion. As a result, the outer part of the hands is usually cut off and the background is blurred. Through this shot, the viewers can be engaged and be curious. 
    2.  Closeup of the face is a shot that focuses on the face in order to show the actor’s emotion. When filming this scene, there needs to be a “talk space” in front of eyes/noses, and the top of the head can be cut off, but not the chin. In addition, two eyes need to be shown.  The close-up of the face shot adds emotion to the scene and lets the viewers see the details in the subject’s face they could not be seen in the wide shot.
    3. Wide shot is a shot that films the entire part of the subject, from top to bottom. A wide shot is mainly filmed to show the subject within their surrounding environment.  Through the wide shot, the viewers are able to know who is in the scene, what the setting is, and when it takes place. 
    4.  Over the shoulder is a shot that films from a character’s point of view. When filming this shot, it is filmed behind the “off-screen” actor showing their shoulder and head, capturing their sight which is usually the “on-screen” actor. Through this over-the-shoulder shot, the viewers are able to realize the relationship between the two characters better. Also, this shot can be shifted from one character’s point of view to another character’s point of view.
  3.  Give a visual example of the 5th shot
    1. The unusual shot is the overhead shot when the camera is placed directly above the subject. This shot is also called a bird eye’s view.

Welcome to Your New Blog!

When you blog you create posts and posts are categorised according to your subject. Some categories have already been set up for you. If you need more categories you can add them as needed. It’s important that your posts have the following:

  • An engaging title – this should not include the name of the subject since this is referenced in the category.
  • Body – this is where you share your learning. This can include text, images, embedded videos from Dragons’ Tube or elsewhere. You should always consider how your post looks to your audience. Is it engaging? Do they want to keep reading?
  • Category – select one that has been set for you or add a new category. Posts can have more than one category e.g. Humanities and Myself as a Learner
