Different camera angles

In the previous post we covered a music video. The music video is shot documentary style and really brings you as the viewer along their journey. You almost feel as one of them but feel very sad for the people who they handle. The moment the group starts to turn on the documentary makers, you feel genuine scared.


This is a tactic used first by the public news. They way a camera crew received orders from the news and determined they way they should report a story.


There is a big difference when you see the forces arguing with certain people from different angles. Let’s say on the left you see the police, and on the right side you see badly dressed protestors. Now, instead of filming on the side of the protestors towards the police, you film it from the other way around. As a viewer you will start to be disgusted by the protestors without even knowing the reason they are protesting. You already start to make your own conclusion: these people are bad and the police should do something.


A change is being made with the future of internet, the fastness of breaking news, real news with real stories.
