Let’s Get Moving! How to Direct Effective Camera Movement!

For newbies in the industry, the best piece of filmmaking advice I can give for adding production value to your films isn’t explosions, flashy cars are elaborate sets, but getting the camera moving!

The worst thing you can do for your script is not compliment it with camera movement. In general, if you want your story to by the absolute best, everything you put into your film must be motivated and intentional about strengthening your story, including what goes into the frame! If everything within the frame helps guide the story, while also being actively a part of it, the movement of your camera also needs to be part of this.

There are hundreds of different ways to move the camera, and when thinking about when to use which movement, when not to use which movement, and when to combine movements, it can make your head spin.
