Join Eduardo Angel for an in-depth discussion in this video Point of view (POV), part of Cinematic Composition for Video Productions.
- We can create suspense by identifying…specific characters directly or indirectly…with subjective cues.…The POV is a great way to approach this…as it represents the subjective perspective…or vision from a character.…How we feel about a character…is largely predicated on proximity.…The closer we are to a character…the more empathetic we are to them.…The relative proximity between the actors…just like in real life also reveals a lot of sorrow,…but often key information.…
When we experience something from…a character's perspective…we effectively become the character…and the story takes a more personal…and subjective meaning.…The advantage of witnessing events on fault…in front of our own eyes make us as viewers…an intrinsic part of the story.…The disadvantage of this technique…is that we can't see the character's face,…so we are forced to assume…his or her emotional response.…When composing a POV we should always consider…the angle of view from which our character…would see the action.…
Let's see a good example.…
Well, we wanted to place the viewer…
