Different Types of Shot and Shot Ideas
In this section we will describe the principle of Walldo, which is a technique that we learned in our Digital Media Class.
There are six basic camera shots used in Digital Media and can easily be remembered with the word "Walldo." All of the following are of paramount importance to both the average and
expert videographer. However, the best videographers find more creative ways to incorporate Walldo into their shots. The most important concept behind Walldo is that it allows creativity into films and keeps the audience's attention by taking an ordinary subject and viewing it from a more exciting perspective.
The six parts of Walldo are:
1. Open Wide - This type of shot can be used virtually all of the time and simply means that the camera view is kept wide to allow an enormous range when filming (very self-explanatory).
2. Angled- Angled shots are shots that add depth and a sense of dimension to videos, which can be easily accessed. An example of this would be instead of filming flag from a regular standing position you could tilt the camera 90 degrees and go underneath the flag to include mainly the flag itself, waving in the wind.
3. Get Low- Instead of shooting a subject whilst standing (which is decent, but too common) you could position yourself on the ground with the camera tilted slightly upward or just straight ahead (this is used when the videographer wants to show a person walking with just the person's feet and legs in order to add a mysterious tone to the film). It's an interesting shot and is mixed in evenly to add variety to videos.
4. Linking- This is done by filming your main subject, and either having the camera move to include more description of the subject's environment or by having the subject walk out of the frame and be shown later in a new environment. This adds depth, the next theme.
5. Depth: This element can be achieved by having the focus on a major person or thing with a distinct background. This adds a sense of dimension to videos as well (once again this explains itself). Depth is the concept that allows the observer to see "the bigger picture" and adds more detail to the environment of the subject instead of having it alone. An example of this would be two people playing catch on a lawn next to a lake and having a canoe moving across the lake in the background of the scene.
6. Opposite- This basically means that the videographer shoots the scene in a style different than what would be expected. This can be done by shooting off of a mirror or filming in front of a subject instead of behind it.
