Shot 2

Learning objective focus


Anticipated student responses

It is anticipated that students will eliminate 'long shot', as the characters are dwarfed by the castle, they are looking scared and we can see the green eyes at the same time. 'Mid shot' is a poor choice as the green eyes are smaller, therefore less threatening, but a good explanation will earn credit. The preferred answer is 'close-up'.

Close-up: Emphasises the fear felt by the characters by showing facial expression, then moves to a close-up of a window at which green eyes appear and blink – threateningly.

Mid shot: Emphasises the fear felt by the characters by showing facial expression, then moves to show green eyes at window.
