The Pull Back Camera Movement


Pulling back lets your audience see the entire scene so they know why the character or object is acting the way they are.

Steps To Success

  1. Create two pull out shots from a close up or extreme close up to a wide shot.
    1. One should be very slow
    2. One should be very fast
    3. Keep the camera STEADY. No shaking.
  2. Have the actor doing something strange and the pull back reveals why  
  3. Think of some clever idea(s) for your scene
    1. Suggestions:
      1. Film someone’s feet moving, reveal why
