My three Ps: passion, patience, perseverance.
You have to do this if you’ve got to be a filmmaker
- Robert Wise
In filmmaking and video production, a shot is a series of frames, that runs for an uninterrupted period of time. Film shots are an essential aspect of a movie where angles, transitions and cuts are used to further express emotion, ideas and movement. The term "shot" can refer to two different parts of the filmmaking process:
- In production, a shot is the moment that the camera starts rolling until the moment it stops.
- In film editing, a shot is the continuous footage or sequence between two edits or cuts.
