Furthermore, camera movement comprises of zooming, panning, tilting, and tracking as a way of producing emotion and compelling viewers. Camera lens’ spans from telephoto to wide angle and gives to the tone and appearance of the movie. Finally, shot types can include long shot, extra-long shot, close up, extra close up, and point of view, and form circumstance of the characters in their settings amid that moment in the plot.

This paper will focus on the film techniques used by Cameron in his three most known movies, Titanic (1997), Avatar (2009), and Terminator series.

For example, in many scenes as the camera follows the action it is shaky rather than sturdy, as if you as a viewer are walking around and seeing the action through your own eyes. One may also notice that an escalated level of action or conversation on the screen is mirrored by the pace of the film from frame to frame. In essence, a heated argument would involve a quick paced transition of shots, going from a close-up of one character to another at a rapid pace in tune with the argument.
In the Truman show, the theme of audience manipulation is greatly portrayed through the different camera shots used. The director uses many different camera shots to emphasize specific actions throughout the film. Eye-level shots, close-up shots, and high-angle shots are
The signs of the time are also shown through the use of specific camera shots, which humble the characters and show their frailty. Long Shots, in particular, are used to exemplify the smallness of the characters (without power) in the vastness of the world around them. In the scene in which the

Each video is a different work out, so you don’t have to do the same thing day in and day out. I found this to be awesome because it kept me engaged and gave my muscles a rest from the workout the day before, making it easier focus on a different area of my body, and making it easier to keep

Camera angles are like the skeleton of a movie. Without close up shots, over the shoulder shots, and cut-in shots, the movie wouldn't look or feel right. Lets start with the close up shot. The close up shot is a very common shot that helps show the subjects mood or emotions. In one scene of Swing Kids the close up shot is used to show mood in Peter's face when he opened the box full of ashes he was supposed to deliver. A good way to show a conversation between two people is the over the shoulder shot. The over the shoulder is used to look over the shoulder of a subject to look and at the speaker. A
