The Point Of View (POV) Shot Is A Great One To Build Suspense

Simply put, this shot is what the character sees. When you see a character looking at something, you must deliver the goods and show the audience what that character is looking at. That’s the POV shot. If you don’t deliver the goods, you may as well turn off the video because your audience will no longer suspend disbelief. The audience needs to see it and that makes it a great way to build suspense. You can stretch it out so you hold a little longer on the character before showing what he is seeing with the POV. Don’t hold it too long, just enough to tease.

You must also keep continuity with your angles. If the POV shot is looking down, then when you shoot the character looking, you must shoot from a low angle looking up at the character.

Do Your Clients Need Web Services?
