A photograph is a still image therefor only seen from one viewpoint, whereas multiple frames are seen in a video.
A vast range of cinematic techniques manages to allow small details to be visible even in a moving video.
- Tracking – a following of a subject, allows chaotic scenes to remain a level of detail
- Slow motion – makes the ordinary seem extra extraordinary
- Framing – frame within frames, to focus attention but also a barrier, to connect yet separate
- Multiple screens – provides larger amount of information as well as suggesting links
- Loops – repetition of imagery
- Composition and a constant visual style
- Colour – sense of structure and character
- Continuity – flow or film/image
- Continuity editing – flow of editing, smooth
- Transitions – sense of meaning, bringing scenes together
- Audio – sense of meaning, bringing scenes together
- Planning – mood board
- Bring it all together!
