Let’s watch this short video from “Reframing Mexico,” a collaboration between UNC Photojournalism and Monterrey Tec.
Note when the producers use shifts in point of view: shots of a person doing something versus shots of that same action from the point of view of the person doing the action (onlooker POV versus subject POV).
Note where’s there’s motion (action) and emotion (stillness, closeups).
Think of your project. Start making a shot list to plan how you will get different POVs, motion, and emotion into your video.
