Planning/Research - Camera Angles

Hello readers,
 Before creating our storyboard and taking test shots, we decided to look at the chase scene from 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1'. Having already looked at this chase scene as a team before, we already knew that we want to echo the same fast pace as has been done within this clip in our own opening credits.

 The shots in this scene vary, creating interest. There is inclusion of tracking shots, medium close up's, long shot's, close up's and panning shots. Through the use of varying shots, the pace is enhanced and the audience are shown different perspectives which increases tension. The quick cut editing successfully creates the illusion of a speedy pace and builds suspense as the viewer does not know what is going to happen next. You can also notice that within this scene, the movement of the camera is very smooth; although we have not practiced much with filming before, we will have to ensure our camera movement is as smooth as possible. We will also use a variety of shots, and consider using ones which are presented in this particular chase scene.
