Muslims and Christians in wild debate about terror attack in Westminster - reportage from our video workshop in Hyde Park



Muslims and Christians in wild debate about terror attack in Westminster last Wednesday. We made a reportage in Hyde Park at Speaker´s Corner last Sunday, 4 days after attack. Thanks Shell for helping me with a reportage!:-)

The reportage was made on our last VIDEO REPORTAGE WORKSHOP in Hyde Park last Sunday I have already saved some time to finish editing the video :-O I hope it will be interesting to see people in not necessarily argue... it is quite sad for me to see them. But still happy that place like Hyde Park where is everyone allowed to keep free speeches about everything still exist!

The mystery of the ´Over the Shoulder Shot´

Frequently used in films and TV series in the interview of two people. Indeed  – we speak about OSS which is short code for ´Over the Shoulder Shot´.
This shot is about we cannot see the person who ´someones´ is already talking to. We just can guess who is it. But only for a moment. Then the shot change its and we can see the other person. So why we use it? So should be said it is pretty nice compromise – when we need to have both people in one shot but concentrate just only on one of them. Obviously this shot of one person with a ´second – quite hidden person´is changes for the ´same shot´ – OSS but with the other person – previously hidden in OSS shot.
So just remember – in your screenplay the short code OSS does mean = We cannot see the second person, only part of it – usually ´the shoulder´ or piece of head, etc.
You can see that in your favourite film or TV series. Take small practice and notice them!

This is the classic one – one person is on shot with full faces – detail or (more usually) medium shot.

Is it or isn´t it a Bird angle? How to work with a different angles of the camera

Sometimes is everything about filming rules just a matter of the ´Point of view´. Let me show you some examples and tips:

A LOW ANGLE, a BIRD ANGLE or an EYE LEVEL?


Always it is about - who is the main actor in our shot - for example here... if will be on the left hand side standing actress, then it is about classical ´low angle´. We held the camera on the level of our waist. If is for us the main person on this picture the working cameraman, then our angle of camera is on the edge ´an eye angle´ with ´a bird angle´.

An EXTREME LOW ANGLE or an EYE LEVEL?
