Part of Lesson Plan: 14 Shots
Activity Overview / Details
For this lecture you will bring up and show the a PowerPoint called "The Perfect Shot." Explain to students that this information is closely related to the information presented in the "Camera Shots & Angles" lesson, but focuses on new information and areas of filming and camera work.
Key vocabulary: Aspect Ratio, Field of view, composition, Rule of thirds, balance, head, nose, leadroom, and horizontal line.
Have your students take notes on the slides and information so they can identify the information on a class assessment that will occur later in the lesson.
There are 11 slides that focus on:
Framing the shot, picture depth, and controlling camera movements.
As you show and discuss each slide, add any additional knowledge or examples that you feel will strengthen the slides and lecture.
Ask for questions or clarification issues before moving on.
Last, you will put your students in pre-selected teams of 4. (You can do this randomly or choose based on your own knowledge of student abilities. Try to make each team of 4 equal in skill level). Give each team a number (usually 1-8) and have students quickly come up with a team name. This will conclude day 1 of the lesson.
