Anderson uses camera movements to speed up the pace as well as to show a constant forward motion. Having an upbeat pace makes the audience feel more elated because it is going so fast they do not have the time to process the sad parts of this story. He also quickens the pace by having short takes so the audience does not have a lot of time to process what has just happened. The constant forward motion of the camera, which is created by either moving the camera on a dolly as they walk, e.g. when the Scout Master is walking past all the tents with the khaki scouts in tow, or by pan the camera extreme fast between each frame, e.g. the beginning and end scene in the house with Suzy’s family.

Rear Window was originally a short story called It To see what they see, and compare our own thoughts with the evolution of the characters and the story. The dexterity of the images, and the impact that each scene has in portraying this theme, guide the viewer throughout the film with little use of dialogue and action. Our central character “Jeff,” is struggling with his casted imprisonment, his need for adventure is apparent as he watches outside his window. Conflicted with his girlfriend and conflicted with his theories, his character becomes more palpable, we begin to realize what is going on not only on the outside of him, but the inside of him as well. The aspects of the outside courtyard and the visual isolation of each apartment, help depict the humanity of each individual and sympathy for even the darkest characters. Hitchcock uses his camera, just as our protagonist does, to focus with him. The camera angles are depicted in a way to which we react with the character, rather than at the character, and eventually expose the minor elements of the story that bring to fruition the suspense of the movie and the thrills of discovery.
In the film The Help, directed by Tate Taylor, an important scene included is when Eugenia, mostly known as Skeeter, confronts her mother Charlotte about her childhood maid Constantine.

In the film ‘The Help’ directed by Tate Taylor, there are numerous scenes that help develop the major plot of the film. I found that one scene in the film is significant. This scene is the one where we see Skeeter walking into her mother's room to ask her about Constantine as she needs the story for her book. Her mother tries to cover up what had happened and it doesn’t go down well with Skeeter. Tate uses many things like dialogue, characterisation, cinematography and theme, to develop the scene, that relates back to other references in the film.
A prime example of this is when Joe Bauers converses with Rita in the visitation room of the prison, after being arrested for failing to grow crops for the citizens. As Joe expresses his emotions to Rita about , a zoom-close up shot helps build emotion and intensity between the two. After this occurred, he came to realize that he regretted being so “average” and asks her to continue painting. A long shot establishes the background of the jail as Rita leaves the establishment. There is also very many scenes that involve high key lighting, and very few instances with low key lighting. This helps set an uplifting and witty mood and atmosphere for the film. The camera shots in this movie directly relate to the light environment and also helps display the intensity of the citizens’
