  • combining close-up shots (detail) with medium shots (context)
  • Shot composition
  • Shows software workflow
  • Leads viewer to where to find more information
  • Tripod to stabilize
  • Shoot during daytime -> diffused lighting
  • Establishing shot
  • Giving/restricting “personality” of characters/objects
  • Surprise and humor
  • Music changes to fit theme

Distracting
