How to use Camera Angles and Movement to tell a Story

How I used camera techniques in the “Bungalow” scene in Man May Love.

Making short films is a great way to experiment filmmaking techniques. In Man May Love, I’ve used many of the things I’ve learned while analyzing great movies.

I’ve made many video essays, and all that counts for nothing if I don’t practice what I preach.

In this video I show you exactly how I’ve used camera angles and movement to reveal the subtext behind what the characters are feeling and thinking.

Enjoy!

There are very few sources on the internet that explain why a director chose the shot selection he did. Thanks for explaining your thinking process, and including all the small details therein. As an aspiring director it is extremely helpful to get these details which can then be applied to my own work. Knowledge is creative power!
