Episode 5 - Camera Ninja Training - Rise Up/Fall Down "Rise up" and "Fall Down" are the two most common moves that a jib can perform. ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ What is Rise Up? Rise Up involves the camera moving vertically up What is Rise Up Used for? Rise Up is used to change a scenes dynamic by moving from a low angle to a high one. Often times this will begin with the subject in a close up manner and as the camera moves upward, it diminishes the subjects presence by increasing the wideness of the scene. *A low camera angle will make a subject seem big and powerful while a high camera angle will have the opposite effect and will give the subject a diminished feel. Using Rise Up, the horizontal plane will become elongated. Elements like Rivers and Roads will stretch across the landscape. Rise Up can also be used to get the camera over obstructions such as a wall or a fence and allow the audience to see something that a character may not. ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ What is Fall Down? Fall Down involves the camera moving vertically downward What is Fall Down Used for? Fall Down is used to change a scenes dynamic by moving from a high angle to a low one. This is an inward move towards the subject and as such will bring intimacy to the subject as the camera falls by increasing the presence of the subject. *A low camera angle will make a subject seem big and powerful while a high camera angle will have the opposite effect and will give the subject a diminished feel. Using Fall Down, the horizontal plane will become diminished. Elements like Rivers and Roads will shrink across the landscape. Fall Down can also be used block the audience from the scene by using a foreground object to hide elements in the plot. ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ A REVEAL is used to expose the audience to a previously hidden key element of the plot.

Storyboard Text

  • Scene setting, the SOUND of the elements, i.e., running water, snow, wind, quietness, birds, skis moving across the snow, etc...
  • "Here at Lite Pro Gear, we're dedicated to helping you create better shots. The two most basic and effective jib moves are Rise Up and Fall down. My name is Kat and I'm going to walk you through these two essential movements."
  • Kat is introduced as a figure skiing through the meadow in Hope Valley. The camera angle is high.
  • "Fall Down is when the camera moves from a high angle to a low angle and is super effective when establishing a scene and bringing the focus from a setting to your subject. The further your subject is away from your camera, the less presence they command. So, in Fall Down, you are gradually giving your subject presence and because the camera and the scene is in motion, it maintains audience interest."
  • Camera Fall Down to Kat's Level as she describes what a "FALL DOWN" move toward Crane move feels like to the viewer.
  • Kat skirts around camera and we follow by turning the camera on a ball head on the jib to stay tracked on her.
  • "The reverse can be said for Rise Up, a classic technique used in many film endings."
  • By starting from a low angle to a high one, the subject's presence becomes diminished as the overall setting becomes great, The horizontal plane grows and rivers and roads elongate through the scene. It is especially worth noting that if a subject is moving away from the camera, a sense of closure will be felt by the audience."
  • As she continues her movement we end up behind her and she begins to moves away from us.
  • As she moves away from the camera, we begin the "RISE UP" move away move. It is during this time that she explains how the rise up makes the viewer feel.
  • "Thanks for joining me in this Episode and we'll see you next time on Lite Pro Gear's - Camera Ninja Training!"
