  • 2. 

    Which of the following is NOT one of the three basic stages of video production:

    • A.

      Pre-production planning

    • B.

      The shoot

    • C.

      Post-production

    • D.

      The rough cut

    Correct Answer
    D. The rough cut
    Explanation
    The rough cut is not one of the three basic stages of video production. The three basic stages are pre-production planning, the shoot, and post-production. Pre-production planning involves all the preparations and arrangements before the actual filming, such as scriptwriting, casting, and location scouting. The shoot is the stage where the actual filming takes place, capturing the footage according to the plan. Post-production is the final stage where the footage is edited, sound is added, and any necessary visual effects are incorporated to create the final product. The rough cut refers to an early version of the edited footage, which is not considered one of the three basic stages.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Any editing activity that takes place after the original footage is shot is called:

    • A.

      Mixing

    • B.

      Rendering

    • C.

      Effects

    • D.

      Post-production

    Correct Answer
    D. Post-production
    Explanation
    Post-production refers to any editing activity that occurs after the original footage is shot. This includes tasks such as editing, color correction, adding visual effects, sound design, and finalizing the video or film. It is the stage where all the elements of the production come together to create the final product. Mixing refers to the process of combining and balancing audio elements, rendering is the process of generating the final output, and effects refer to the visual enhancements added to the footage. Therefore, post-production is the correct answer as it encompasses all these activities.

    A camera placed at eye-level with the subject provides the viewer with a sense of:

    • A.

      Inferiority

    • B.

      Dominance

    • C.

      Equality

    • D.

      Aggressiveness

    Correct Answer
    C. Equality
    Explanation
    When a camera is placed at eye-level with the subject, it creates a sense of equality between the viewer and the subject. This positioning allows the viewer to see the subject from a perspective that is on the same level, creating a sense of connection and relatability. It eliminates any power dynamics that could be associated with a higher or lower angle, and instead fosters a feeling of equal footing between the viewer and the subject.

    • D.

      Number 4

    Correct Answer
    D. Number 4
    Explanation
    Number 4 is a good example of the "bird's eye" angle because it shows a view from directly above the subject, as if the camera is positioned high up in the air looking down. This angle provides a unique and often dramatic perspective, allowing the viewer to see the subject from a different and elevated viewpoint.

      Number 3

    • D.

      Number 4

    Correct Answer
    C. Number 3
    Explanation
    Number 3 is a good example of a "Batman" angle because it is a low-angle shot that is taken from below the subject, creating a sense of power and dominance. This type of shot is often used in superhero movies, like Batman, to make the character appear larger than life and to emphasize their strength and authority.

    A camera placed below eye-level (looking up at  the subject) provides the viewer with a sense of:

    • A.

      Inferiority

    • B.

      Dominance

    • C.

      Equality

    • D.

      Aggressiveness

    Correct Answer
    A. Inferiority
    Explanation
    A camera placed below eye-level looking up at the subject can create a visual perspective that makes the subject appear larger and more powerful, while the viewer appears smaller and less significant. This can evoke a sense of inferiority in the viewer, as they are looking up to the subject and may feel small or insignificant in comparison.

  • 9. 

    A camera placed above eye-level (looking down at  the subject) provides the viewer with a sense of:

    • A.

      Inferiority

    • B.

      Dominance

    • C.

      Equality

    • D.

      Aggressiveness

    Correct Answer
    B. Dominance
    Explanation
    A camera placed above eye-level (looking down at the subject) provides the viewer with a sense of dominance. This is because the camera angle creates a perspective where the subject appears smaller and more vulnerable, while the viewer is positioned in a position of power. This angle is often used in photography and film to convey a sense of authority or control over the subject.

    A birds-eye camera placement provides the viewer with a sense of:

      Being unbalanced, intoxicated, or insane

    • B.

      Being in charge or feeling superior

    • C.

      Being inferior or feeling weak

    • D.

      Being a distant observer... not really involved.

    Correct Answer
    D. Being a distant observer... not really involved.
    Explanation
    A birds-eye camera placement in film or photography captures the scene from a high angle, giving the viewer a perspective as if they are looking down from above. This vantage point creates a sense of detachment and distance, making the viewer feel like a distant observer who is not actively involved in the scene. It allows the viewer to observe the events from a removed position, without feeling any personal connection or involvement.
