Great video showing how to use a video camera for recording footage that doesn’t look like junk. For middle school students, the first minute of this video is what’s most important. Learn how to record the ESTABLISHING SHOT, LONG and MID RANGE-SHOT and the CLOSE-UP. Students who skip over learning these types of shots will produce films where the camera follows the action and will often record much more footage than necessary. Learning how to frame a shot takes practice. Before moving onto filming fight scenes or recording a chase scene, students need to have a solid understanding of these basic shots.
