Film Study - Camera Angles

Film Study - Camera Angles


Study 5 key camera angles as part of your film or documentary studies with this PowerPoint presentation as well as an interactive activity and an editable glossary worksheet. Films as literature are priceless for engaging students in how language techniques fulfill purpose and suggest ideas - skills they can then more easily take into their written text studies. Win! Win!


This resource is also appropriate for learning about movie making! Slides cover 5 key camera angles, showing: ☆ Camera placement - bird's-eye view, high angle, eye-level, low angle, worm's-eye view ☆ Audience point of view ☆ General effects of each angle. Students complete a glossary - which can be done on a printed worksheet or on their devices - as you proceed through the presentation. Finally, students are given a fun, interactive task to create their own pictures to illustrate camera angles ... using their mobile phones.


This resource includes:

⭐ A PowerPoint presentation covering camera angles, their effects plus instructions for an interactive student activity.

⭐ An editable glossary - two designs - A-Z or in an order that logically follows the camera from top to bottom. Print or share online.


You and your students will enjoy:

❤️ Clear visual representations of camera angles

❤️ A brief but robust description of the effects of each camera angle to take into an analysis of your own film or documentary study.

❤️ A fun interactive activity on students' phones (or other device) that provides them with a record of camera angles to refer to later.

❤️ A glossary that can be glued into a book or folder for future reference. You'll also love the ability to decide between two different designs PLUS the choice of completing this in printable form or online.
