Moving the camera: Handheld shots: Creating a Short Film: 05 Directing

Handheld shots are when the camera operator actually holds the camera in hand, either in their hands, or with a shoulder mounted rig. This creates organic movement as the camera moves with the operator, and tends to breathe life into camera shots, making them feel more intense. Handheld camera moves can be great when characters are scared or nervous.
