The 5 C's

Long Shot

Camera Angles:
Long Shot: tells the audience where the film is set, lets you know all the important information.

Medium Shot
Medium Shot: Most commonly used shot, Used for any character interaction.

Close-up: When something/someone important needs to be shown to the audience then a close-up is used.

Continuity: Generally refers to visual errors. Basic example: A character wears a red top and then seconds later wear a blue top.

Cutting (Editing) : Essential part otherwise films would be in real time and never end. Allows director to change location. Main use is to either add pace to a scene to make it exciting (action films) or to slow it down for dramatic purpsoses (Romance films)

Composition: How the film is put together.
