Anticipated student responses

Although 'slow zoom-in' and 'slow zoom-out' are not preferred answers, it is possible to gain credit if good reasons are given. The preferred answer is 'handheld zoom-in'.

Handheld zoom-in: Brings us close to the characters' faces as they turn and scream; the camera seems to be a monster (or something scary) creeping up behind them; we seem to be seeing through the monster's eyes as it walks jerkily towards them.

Slow zoom-in: Brings us close to the characters' faces as they turn and scream; the camera seems to be a monster (or something scary) creeping up behind them.

Slow zoom-out: The camera moves out until it appears to be a very tall giant looking down at the characters and they scream when they realise it.
