Film Techniques Project By: Josh Perry, and Gabe Austin

Dolly Shot:

Dolly Shot A dolly shot is one where the camera is placed on a dolly and is moved while filming. Also known as a tracking shot

Jump Cut:

Jump Cut Basically, two similar shots cut together with a jump in continuity, camera position or time.

Raw Stock:

Raw Stock Unexposed film.

Macro Lens:

Macro Lens A lens that can be used for extremely close to the subject. The focusing ring will keep going past the lowest setting (on the Switar lens a red ring will appear to let you know) all the way around again. When in macro the distances on the focusing ring no longer apply.

Fade :

Fade A transition from a shot to black where the image gradually becomes darker is a Fade Out; or from black where the image gradually becomes brighter is a Fade In. Fades are done at the lab in the printing phase, but prepared by the negative cutter, who cuts in an overlap of black into the A&B rolls. Labs will only do fades in fixed amounts, such as 24 frames, 48 frames, etc.

Crane Shot:

Crane Shot A moving shot taken by the camera on a specially constructed crane, usually from a high perspective.

Back Lighting:

Back Lighting Lighting in which the main source of illumination is directed towards the camera, thus tending to throw the subject into silhouette.

Long Shot:

Long Shot A shot taken with a camera at a distance from its subject.

Dutch Tilt:

Dutch Tilt A crazily tilted image in which the subject appears on a diagonal or off-balance.


Close-up A shot in which a small detail or a face fills the frame, taken either by setting the camera close to the subject or by using a long focal-length lens. In relation to a human subject, close-up usually refers to a shot of the face alone although, of course, there may be close-ups of hands or feet, or any other part of the body.
