Camera positioning activity - Dingi

Watch the following film sequence from the short film from india, Dingi (2012, U) & nameas many different camera positions as you can.

Working from the information in the previous step, watch this short film and see how many of the different camera positions you can recognise. Again, this is a great way to introduce camera positioning to your class. You could even play ‘camera positioning bingo’ by creating a list of each shot and asking students to race to complete a “full house” by being the first to check every shot off the list.

Please add any thoughts on the different camera positions and how they facilitate the story to the comments below.
