Camera Blocking For Emotional Intent


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Each new shot in a sequence creates either:(1) information or (2) 

    • A.

      Story

    • B.

      Scene set up

    • C.

      Character information

    • D.

      Emotion

    Correct Answer
    D. Emotion
    Explanation
    Each new shot in a sequence can create either new information or evoke a specific emotion. While story, scene set up, and character information are important elements in filmmaking, they do not necessarily apply to every shot in a sequence. Emotion, on the other hand, can be conveyed through various visual and auditory techniques, allowing the audience to connect with the narrative on a deeper level. Therefore, the correct answer is emotion.

  • 2. 

    A director asks themselves these two questions (1) who does the story/scene belong to? (2) what do I want to tell the audience when?

    Correct Answer
    C. To decide which information or emotion is important to the story
    Explanation
    The correct answer is to decide which information or emotion is important to the story. This is because the director's role is to make creative decisions that enhance the storytelling process. By determining what information or emotion is crucial to the story, the director can effectively convey the intended message to the audience. This decision influences various aspects of filmmaking, such as shot composition, dialogue, and overall narrative structure.

    Do not cut from shot size to the same shot size too often 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement "Do not cut from shot size to the same shot size too often" is true. This guideline is commonly followed in filmmaking and video editing to maintain visual interest and avoid monotony. Cutting from one shot size to the same shot size repeatedly can be visually jarring and may disrupt the flow of the scene. Varying shot sizes helps to create a dynamic and engaging visual narrative, allowing the audience to focus on different aspects of the scene and enhancing the overall viewing experience.

    Jump across the axis/line of action as often as possible 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that in order to have a successful jump, one should try to cross the axis or line of action as frequently as possible. However, this is incorrect. In most cases, it is more efficient and effective to minimize the number of times one crosses the axis or line of action during a jump. This allows for better control, stability, and accuracy during the jump. Therefore, the correct answer is false.

    Books use words. Film and Animation must use __________, sound and music. 

    Correct Answer
    pictures
    Explanation
    Books use words to convey their stories and ideas. In contrast, film and animation rely on a combination of visuals, sound, and music to communicate their messages. While words can be powerful in books, pictures are essential in film and animation as they provide visual representations of the story, characters, and settings. Pictures help to create a visual narrative, capturing the audience's attention and immersing them in the story being told on screen.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    When you establish a shot by using a bird's eye view, you actually crane up on the scene, not down. This shot allows the audience to see the scene from a high angle, giving a broader perspective and often making the character appear small or insignificant in relation to their surroundings. It is often used to show the layout of a location or to create a sense of distance or isolation. Therefore, the correct answer is false.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Starting a shot low and booming up emotionally does not necessarily mean that you will sink into the scene/mood and discover what is important. While this technique can be used to create a specific effect or emphasize certain elements in a scene, it does not guarantee that the viewer will have a deeper understanding or connection with the scene. Therefore, the statement is false.

    When a camera moves closer to a character it creates a powerful feeling of change. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Moving the camera closer to a character can create a powerful feeling of change because it alters the perspective and proximity between the viewer and the character. This change in distance can evoke a sense of intimacy, intensity, or vulnerability, depending on the context and intention of the filmmaker. By physically bringing the audience closer to the character, it enhances their emotional connection and immersion in the story, making the experience more impactful and engaging.

    • B.

      Low level

    • C.

      Birds eye view

    Correct Answer
    A. Eye level
    Explanation
    The shot at eye level tells us there is little conflict in the scene because it provides a neutral perspective, allowing us to see the characters and their surroundings without any distortion or bias. This shot creates a sense of balance and normalcy, suggesting that there are no power dynamics or intense emotions present in the scene. It allows the audience to feel more connected to the characters and their experiences, without any dramatic or exaggerated elements.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    Which shot tells us there is lots of conflict in the scene? 

    • A.

      Eye level shot

    • B.

      Low level shot

    • C.

      Birds eye view

    Correct Answer
    B. Low level shot
    Explanation
    A low level shot suggests there is lots of conflict in the scene because it creates a sense of vulnerability and powerlessness. By positioning the camera at a lower angle, it makes the subjects appear larger and more dominant, while also emphasizing their physicality and intensity. This can enhance the tension and aggression in the scene, indicating a high level of conflict between the characters or elements present.
